* Humorous poetry, music, laughter and fun abound in this magical session for families. There's a parent-kid contest, a family project, and more of Jeff's exuded enthusiasm, guitar-playing, singing and enactments. Among many other unusual things, you'll see a flying sheep, a flying Jeff Nathan, a giant fly, and Jeff getting soaked with flying water as he sings a different version of that famous French song "Alouette" -- "All Wet". Families will work together on some word fun as Jeff teaches everyone a word game for long car rides or short waits in the doctor's office. Commonly followed by a book signing, these sessions are GREAT FAMILY FUN.
