#entertainingathome: Michelle Obama will be doing live storytime for kids and here's how to tune in
Desperately trying to plan out some indoor activities to keep your little ones entertained for the next few weeks?
We got another one to add to the timetable: Storytime with Michelle Obama.
That's right. According to CNN, she announced that she is teaming up with PBS Kids and Penguin Random House to host a weekly read-aloud series.
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!).
Join me, @PBSKIDS, and @penguinrandom for read-alongs on Mondays at 12pm ET on @PBSKIDS Facebook and YouTube! https://t.co/839isAWKSt

"As a little kid, I loved to read aloud. And when I became a parent, I found such joy in sharing the magic of storytelling with my own children — and then later, as First Lady, with kids everywhere," Obama said in a statement.
