Life Michelle Obama embarks on a new career as a reading mother By weekster Posted on April 24, 2020 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Michelle Obama (56) is committed to children during the coronavirus and does this by reading a children’s book online every Monday. The former First Lady kicked off on Monday with the book ‘The Gruffalo’, in which the story is told about a mouse who, thanks to his intelligence and imagination, among other things, outgrows a fox and other animals that target him. Obama announced this via Twitter. Her online show is called Mondays With Michelle Obama and is shown via Facebook and YouTube. For the time being, Michelle will read until May 11. There was an immediate enthusiastic response to her initiative, which was reflected in the number of ‘likes’ her message received on social media. Other celebrities that children read during the corona virus are Jimmy Fallon, Jennifer Garner and Demi Lovato.
