CBeebies today announced that Orlando Bloom is the latest star to read a CBeebies Bedtime Story.
The actor will read We Are Together, written and illustrated by Britta Teckentrup. The book, to be shown on CBeebies on Friday, November 9, celebrates the importance of having special friends and family in your life.
“Through my travels as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador I’ve met children in countries all over the world, and witnessed firsthand how storytelling between adults and young children helps cement their bond,” said Bloom. Children light up when being taken on imaginary adventures through storytelling, and it helps their creativity grow. It was great to be a part of CBeebies Bedtime Stories.”
It is the first of two stories he has recorded for CBeebies.
Orlando Bloom is the latest name to be added to a stellar list of celebrities to have read a CBeebies Bedtime Story, including Ewan McGregor, Tom Hardy, Sir Elton John, Chris Evans, George Ezra, Suranne Jones, Dolly Parton, Eddie Redmayne, Jessica Ennis-Hill and David Tennant.
