Times are tough, especially for parents with kids at home now that school is canceled. Celebrities have been taking to social media to read kid’s stories as a means of entertainment and a way to raise money for the youths. Here is a list of our favorites!

Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton has been reading children’s bedtime stories during social distancing. She’s snuggled up in comfy PJs in her bed. Curl up and join Dolly for a relaxing bedtime story.

Amy Adams

Amy Adams is reading on her IG page as a part of @SAVEWITHSTORIES. The program is an effort to raise money for hungry children and also to entertain those youngsters that rely on school for more than simply education. 

Jennifer Garner

Jennifer Garner, an American treasure, has partnered with Amy Adams to form @SAVEWITHSTORIES. She has plenty of other celebs on her channel. The biggest celebrity of all? Her golden retriever Birdie.

Jimmy Fallon

“Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon got in on the fun by reading his children’s book, “This Is Baby.” Famously bringing kids games to his late-night show, he’s adept at connecting with children through this story.
