THE POWER OF INFLUENCE | Michelle Obama To Read Children’s Books On PBS Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

Former first lady Michelle Obama announced Friday she’s partnering with PBS for the next month for a virtual storytime each Monday during the coronavirus outbreak.

At this time when so many families are under so much stress, I’m excited to give kids a chance to practice their reading and her some wonderful stories’, Obama, 56, who focused much of her time in the White House on children’s nutrition with her ‘Let’s Move’ campaign, said in a statement.

She said she hopes it will also give families a ‘much-needed’ break.

As a little kid, I love to read aloud. And when I become a parent, I found such joy in sharing the magic of storytelling with my own children – and then later, as First Lady, with kids everywhere’, she added.

‘Mondays With Michelle Obama’ will air on Monday at noon EY, starting next week. Each week she’ll read one of her favorite children’s classics, including ‘The Gruffalo’. ‘There’s a Dragon in Your Book’, ‘Miss Maple’s Seed’ and ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’.
