Jim Blissitt III Drops Inspirational Children’s Book 9/25

Author, educator and sociologist, Jim Blissitt III has a new book dropping on September 25 called “Whatever Happened to the Boy That Played Basketball All Night” and hopes to serve as a source of inspiration for your children. As a parent I would definitely recommend this book because it is based on Jim’s own experiences as a Senior Level Administrator with the Chicago Public School System and he took his own love of the sport and incorporated it into this awesome children’s book.


The book is about a boy who overcomes loneliness through basketball. I commend Jim on his creativity but also initiative to create a positive example for the youth. Chicago is a city that is often depicted in the mainstream media as being plagued by crime but Jim is an example of someone who is changing that narrative. You can preorder the book at:
