Guess Who's on Oprah?

Not me.

This amazing, local music/voice teacher, Jamie Perez, gathered an entire middle school together to create a music video that celebrates READING! It's so much fun.

The folks at Oprah discovered it and are airing the video on today's show.

As a children's book author, I couldn't be more excited to see so many middle school kids having a blast promoting one of my favorite activities -- READING!

Incidentally, Jamie is wearing the red shirt and white vest. Enjoy the video:

Thanks for posting this, Donna. It is an amazing video! Jamie Perez is a talented and enthusiastic voice teacher--my daughters adore her. I bet all 1,700 middle school students at Ocoee adore her too.

Yup. Just watched it on Oprah. Those kids were so excited. And they're getting a hip new library to boot.
