PBS KIDS and Little Free Library have partnered for the “Read-Along” initiative on Facebook and YouTube for a collection of story-time videos this summer designed to encourage reading and togetherness for kids and parents.
The kick-off will be with NBA Legend and entrepreneur Dwyane Wade as he reads Gabrielle Union’s children’s book, Welcome to the Party. Following Wade, Camila Alves McConaughey, Tim Gunn, Carla Hall, Anthony Ramos, Marley Dias, Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker, and more throughout the summer.
Previous PBS KIDS Read-Alongs features Michelle Obama, Kristen Bell, Jenna Bush Hager, and more.
Each reading is livestreamed on PBS KIDS’ Facebook and YouTube channel and remains available for viewing on demand on both platforms immediately following. Companion literacy resources for each “Read-Along” are available on pbskidsforparents.org. The full schedule is available here.
