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.

‘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’.
