PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Former New England Patriots wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell visited an elementary school in Providence Tuesday morning.

Mitchell read his book, “My Very Favorite Book in the Whole Wide World,” and gave each student their own copy.

After leaving football due to injury, Mitchell wrote several children’s books and established a nonprofit organization that encourages childhood literacy.

The retired wide receiver now holds “Reading Rallies” all over the country.
