10 Bedtime Stories Read Virtually By Celebrities During The Pandemic

2 Mins Read

Many parents are now juggling work, homeschooling and parenting at the same time as the world stays home to combat the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. To try to relieve some of the stress from parents, several Hollywood A-listers will be live-streaming their bedtime story reading as a part of the Save With Stories initiative founded by Amy Adams and Jennifer Garner. All the stories are live-streamed through Instagram Live, but can be rewatched anytime after they have been posted. Below are some of the children’s books read aloud by your favourite actors, from Glenn Close to Eddie Redmayne. 

Plus: it’s all for a good cause – while it is free for all, the initiative is appealing for donations to global charities Save the Children and No Kid Hungry to support some of the most vulnerable children in this time of crisis.
