Kids in the UAE can listen to stories read by celebrities

Kids in the UAE can settle down for story time with loads of celebrities.

Big names such as Dolly Parton, Reese Witherspoon and Josh Gad (yes, he's the voice of quirky Snowman, Olaf, from Frozen) are digging out their favourite story books to read to your kids.

Home learning is exhausting for mums, dads and kids. So after a long day of forcing your reluctant students to get their studies done, there's nothing wrong with handing the reins over to someone else – especially if that someone else happens to be a Hollywood star or an award-winning country singer.

Little literary-lovers can tune in to listen to some lovely, calm readings of some of the best-loved children's books by some well-known stars... and best of all, it's all free.

Here are six to try so make sure they're sitting comfortably.
