Storybook & Song
A key element of the Sweet Change Good Deeds Program is an illustrated children’s storybook with an accompanying song, in which children between the ages of six and thirteen are taught and encouraged to do good deeds for the benefit of their friends and family, the environment and their community. A copy of the book will be given to participants of the program.
The song (Demo below) will be sung by a children's chorus.
