About the Event

Have you thought about turning your kids' artwork and ideas into a book? Introducing a new Laughter and Literacy Project via Harmony Mind Body Spirit Wellness! My name is Olivia Vo, Laughter Yoga Leader with Harmony and I am a locally published bestselling author of 3 books including Heart Notes Anthology, The Impact of One Voice, and The Cinderella Monologues. It is a thrilling experience to see your words and ideas come to life in the form of a book! And writing and publishing is what I would love for your kids to be involved in too and foster lifelong literacy. To help them in creative expression, there are playful laughter exercises that they can learn and practice at any time. I have partnered up with a wonderful organization called Student Treasures and they provide free book kits. To participate is free and 1 book will be published for our Harmony MBSW team. You have the option to directly purchase a copy for your child from Student Treasures (softcover at $22.95 & hardcover at $27.95) In the spirit of Thanksgiving, our book topic will be "I am Grateful" and they can learn to express gratitude.  They can draw pictures of what or who they are grateful for and explain what gratitude means to them.

Your kids may draft their pictures and writing ahead of time and bring it to the event where they can transfer that onto our book pages. The books will be in landscape format and each child will have their own blank page for a drawing and then 1 ruled page for writing (8 lines). Ideally I would love to have 15-20 kids participate!  This is suitable for children ages 5-11. After our event, I will be compiling the kit and sending it in for publishing on Nov 28th. We aim to have the books ready by Dec 5th and they'll make great holiday gifts! Thank you so much!  This will be a fantastic first project and I am looking forward to more book series and topics.
