EXCITING NEWS! Parents, set your watches! Starting today, Monday April 20 at 9:00 AM. Pacific Time (11:00 AM CST and 12:00 PM EST), former first lady Michelle Obama will host a story time on PBS Kids’ Facebook and YouTube pages. The first installment in the four-week series will feature “The Gruffalo” by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler.
The read-along is a joint program developed by Obama, PBS Kids and Penguin Random House. As a child, the former First Lady loved reading and also shared the joy of reading with her daughters, Sasha and Malia. “At this time when so many families are under so much stress,”, she said, “I’m excited to give kids a chance to practice their reading and hear some wonderful stories (and to give parents and caretakers a much-needed break).”
