Michelle Obama is reading children's books live
You, like many parents during COVID-19 self-isolation, have probably read through every book in your child’s library already.
Luckily, someone is offering to give you a break.
That someone is the former first lady.
Michelle Obama will host a live online reading of a children’s book each Monday for four weeks, starting April 20.
“I’m thrilled to share some of my favorite children’s books and give kids an opportunity to practice their reading (while giving families a much-needed break!)”, said Obama in a tweet.
