Let Oprah and Other Celebrities Read Your Kids a Story


You get a storytime. And you get a storytime. And you get a storytime! Thanks to the SAG-AFTRA Foundation you can have Oprah and a ton of other celebrities read your kids a story.

We already shared a link to Betty White reading “Harry the Dirty Dog.” Next up, we recommend queuing up “The Hula Hoopin’ Queen” with Oprah Winfrey.

After that, there are dozens of options, including Sabrina The Teenage Witch, aka Kiernan Shipka, reading “The House That Jane Built” and Hopper from “Stranger Things” reading “Snappy The Alligator.”

You can stream the story time videos any time you want on Storyline Online. Each book also includes supplemental curriculum developed by a credentialed elementary educator, aiming to strengthen comprehension and verbal and written skills for English-language learners.

Other celebs featured on the site include Austinite Elijah Wood, Justin Theroux, Viola Davis, Chris Pine, Lily Tomlin, Kevin Costner, James Earl Jones, and dozens more.
