Children enjoyed being on stage and dancing to peppy Australian tunes.

What’s a didgeridoo?

Kids from all over Sabine Parish who attended the Sabine Parish Library’s Universe of Stories summer reading program found out last Tuesday at the Many Community Center’s kickoff celebration.

Mr. Didgeridoo himself, Rob Thomas, in a high energy program taught the children all about the land down under -- Australia, where the didgeridoo originated. It’s a horn, a long horn, and it was originally made by the native aboriginal people of Australia. It emits a long, flowing sound, and Thomas is a master at playing it. He brought several didgeridoos to show the children and he played the horns for them.

Thomas also taught the children about Australian music, character building, geography, new vocabulary words, and about being kind to the environment.
