Storyline Online – Have a book read for you

Nothing gives a more cosy warm feeling than having a book read to you at bedtime… especially if the person reading it happens to be Kevin Costner!

The SAG Foundation’s children’s literacy website, Storyline Online, streams imaginatively produced videos featuring celebrated actors including Kevin Costner, Rita Moreno, Annette Bening, James Earl Jones, Elijah Wood, Hector Elizondo, and Betty White reading children’s books alongside creatively produced illustrations, helping to inspire a love of reading in children.

Reading to children has been repeatedly shown to improve their reading, writing and communication skills, logical thinking, concentration and general academic aptitude as well as inspire a love of reading. The Screen Actors Guild Foundation, a non-profit organisation, records well-known actors reading children’s books and makes graphically dynamic videos so that children around the world can be read to with just the click of a Storyline Online video book image.

Many teachers play SAG Foundation’s Storyline Online videos for their students. Doctors and nurses play Storyline Online videos for children in hospitals. And parents and children around the world watch Storyline Online videos millions of times every month.

Take a look at their fab website – it’s great for kids. But if one night you can’t sleep, take yourself to and Kevin Costner might just read you a story to help you drift off.
