Transcript for Celebs read children's books online to raise money for food insecure kids
for you coming up, but Adrienne Bankert has promised us some lighter moments in "Pop news"? Something to smile about. I think we all need something to smile about, right? On a Friday especially. We begin this morning with some of our favorite celebrities coming together amidst the coronavirus outbreak for a really great cause. Reading books for children who might be going without food, now that their schools are closed. Take a look. Reporter: Kids gathering around to hear familiar voices like Josh gad reading some of their favorite books. Gondola. Gondola. Reporter: And Jennifer garner calling on her friends to raise awareness and money for those in need of school supplies and food. Then I'll munch and I'll crunch and I'll smash your house Reporter: More a-listers joining in on story time including Reese Witherspoon. Everyone knows there's no such thing as little girls. They're just make believe. Reporter: And Amy Adams. Camila Cabello reading her story in Spanish. And Jamie Lee Curtis giving kids quite the show. Today I am cranky. Nothing seems right. I think that reading out loud to kids is one of the best pieces of therapy we could use right now. I would love to hear you reading a story. It helps you too when you read it like that, with your emotions. Yes. Let's all smile today, okay? Please. Now check Instagram. I support her. Check Instagram for saved stories to find more of those storytelling moments. You can join in too, and post with your family. So many artists are coming up with ideas to help keep them busy, but our favorite, our favorite favorite is a children's author. His livestreams invite, quote, learners of all ages into a studio and encourages them to draw and write with him. He's also encouraging students to send him questions via email, and some other people are just doodling on their own because it's a free doodling world. Have you seen this trend on your Instagram feed? Basically somebody draws an item like a carrot or an Orange, maybe a duck. Tags a friend and then that person adds to the picture with their own doodle and then you have this chain of fun doodles. I love that. Today's message is be a child at heart. No matter how complicated the world gets, read some stories, draw a little bit. Cheer everyone up. You did a little of that. Thank you very much. Thank you for having me.
