Book launched with a song

WHAT better way to celebrate the National Year of Reading than with song?

And puppets will certainly add to the effect.

Parents and kids have a treat in store this Saturday August 25.

Heidi and Renae from Murwillumbah's best little book store, Heidi's Place have arranged for local author and music therapist Jack O'Leary to visit their shop at 6 Queen St.

Look out for the balloons.

Jack will be bringing his puppets, songs and stories to entertain the children.

Jack's books 'Sing Into School' and 'Sing at School' will soon be joined by 'Sing to the Dentist'.

"I believe music connects the heart to the mind and joy is found in the creative process," he said.

So come and celebrate the National Year of Reading and Reading Hour and then stay for the Banana Festival Parade.

For more information ring 02 66726881.
