Dennis Rodman surprises kids with visit in Atlantic City

Basketball hall of famer Dennis Rodman has made a surprise visit to give out copies of his book to a group of kids in New Jersey.

Rodman came to the Boys and Girls Club of Atlantic City Friday and spoke to a crowd of over a hundred children urging them to seize opportunities and move forward with their lives. He answered questions about his basketball career and took group pictures in the club’s basketball arena.

Rodman and co-author Dustin Warburton brought copies of his 2013 children’s book, “Dennis the Wild Bull,” for all of the kids and signed several dozen copies that will be given out at random.

Rodman says he wants the book to send the message to kids that it’s OK to be different and to feel comfortable in your own skin.
