Penguin Young Readers, Random House Children’s Books and PBS KIDS have announced that “Mondays with Michelle Obama,” its collaboration with the former First Lady of the U.S., will be extended with four new story times on May 18 and May 25.
On each of the new dates, two videos from “Mondays with Michelle Obama” will live-stream back-to-back on Facebook and YouTube, with the former First Lady being joined by surprise guests for one of the two children’s books she will read aloud.
The story times “Mondays with Michelle Obama” began on April 20 on Facebook and YouTube, in support of Penguin Random House’s recently launched “Read Together, Be Together“ literacy initiative and PBS KIDS’s “Read-Along” effort.
“Mondays with Michelle Obama” are livestreamed simultaneously at 12:00PM EDT on PBS KIDS’ Facebook page and YouTube channel, and on Penguin Random House’s Facebook page. It will be available for viewing on-demand on all of those platforms immediately thereafter.
The additional episodes of “Mondays with Michelle Obama” will feature Obama reading aloud from four children’s books:
“Giraffe Problems” written by Jory John; illustrated by Lane Smith; and
“The Bear Ate Your Sandwich” with a surprise guest, written and illustrated by Julia Sarcone-Roach.
“Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” written and illustrated by Dr. Seuss; and
“Can I Be Your Dog?” with a surprise guest, written and illustrated by Troy Cummings.
A suite of activities, tips, and resources for each of the books that Obama will read are available at readtogetherbetogether.com, and companion literacy resources are available on pbskidsforparents.org.
