Dicopoulos has teamed up with fellow actor Olympia Dukakis, as well as singers Gloria Gaynor and Constantine Maroulis (of American Idol) and CBS news correspondent Alexis Christoforous for the new children's book and CD Growing Up With Loukoumi by Nick Katsoris. The book follows the story of a lamb named Loukoumi who wanders along, wondering what to do when she grows up. In the course of her travels, she meets up with various friends including Gus the bear, Marika the monkey and Dean the dog (voiced by Dicopoulos). Each of her friends encourages Loukoumi to become whatever is closest to her heart; she just has to work hard and always believe in herself. It's an important message as Dicopoulos has suggested, 'The most important thing a child can have is dreams.'
On Sunday November 5th, the Children's museum of Manhattan hosted the official premiere of the book and CD. This featured a live reading with the stars of the album and the debut of Gloria Gaynor's original song 'Believe'. We received out copy of the Loukoumi book here at Soaps.com and it's fantastic! We're very pleased that Nick Katsoris got in touch with us to spread the word about this book with its positive messages to children about life's possibilities and the value of believing in yourself. It's also great for parents to bring the CD with them during car rides and could make a valuable holiday gift.
