Schools all around the world right now are shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic, leaving educators and parents alike working hard to find ways to continue the daily routines of learning, education, and fun that their children are used to.
Save With Stories is a project working in partnership with Save the Children and No Kid Hungry, offering educational resources for children affected by school closures and raising money toward the aforementioned charities.
When Jennifer Garner and Amy Adams first announced #SaveWithStories, it began as a small idea to read stories to kids for the sake of fostering positivity in these difficult times. Now, a month later, the initiative has blossomed into a beautiful success, with storybook contributions read by many familiar faces such as Chris Evans, Natalie Portman, Reese Witherspoon, Jude Law, and so many more.
Today, Save With Stories shared a video of Sebastian Stan reading the children’s book I Love You to the Moon and Back by Amelia Hepworth. Watch Stan recite the story below.
