Jennifer Aniston is to narrate a new children’s book with her father for charity.
Along with John Aniston, the 40-year-old actress and star of Marley And Me will lend her voice to an audio CD version of Nick Katsoris’ Loukoumi’s Good Deeds, the third release in an ongoing series about doing nice things for other people.
“Jennifer was wonderful, they were so easy to work with and it was the first time they had done something together,” Katsoris told RadarOnline.com. "They recorded in L.A. last fall and she was just a joy to work with… All the proceeds go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and Jennifer is a big fan of them."
The stories feature Loukoumi the lamb and her friends Gus the Bear, Fistiki the Cat, Dean the Dog and Marika the Monkey – a group of characters that like doing good deeds. Among the actors voicing characters for ’Loukoumi’s Good Deeds’ are Oscar-winning actress Olympia Dukakis, Gloria Gaynor and US news presenter Alexis Christoforous.
“It is a wonderful story, plain and simple,” said a spokesperson for Aniston. “She did it because she wanted to do it with her dad, as well as she loved the story.”
$2 from the sale of every CD will go to St Judes to help seriously ill children. An excerpt from the CD – which is to be released on April 1 – can be heard here.
