What's more satisfying than a good book? Listening to Julie Andrews read the book aloud, of course!
On April 29, the actress and author will team up with American Public Media to launch a storytelling podcast, Julie's Library, alongside her daughter, writer and educator Emma Walton Hamilton. If you and your little bookworms (particularly those ages 4–10) have been taking advantage of virtual storytimes while at home, you need to add this to your list.
“It is our hope that the stories and ideas we share on Julie’s Library will provide family listening pleasure, inspire meaningful conversations and be a trusted resource for literary enjoyment and learning,” Andrews said in a statement.
Listeners can expect readings from the best kids' books, fun sound effects and even appearances from celebrities! Neat! If that doesn't make for a fun bedtime story, we're not sure what does.
Be sure to visit Julie's Library website for more information about what's to come and even book recommendations! If you're searching for more listening adventures, check out our go-to podcasts for kids, including Wow in the World, Girl Tales, Smash Boom Best and more!
