If you search live story time in Facebook or in Google you will find people stuck at home with little ones that have started to stream live videos of themselves reading classic children's book and modern day favourites such as Judith Kerr's The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Julia Donaldson's Room on the Broom.
Big name authors are also getting in on the act, such as David Walliams who recently announced he will be releasing a free audio story from his The World's Worst Children series, every day for 30 days. To access them, go to www.worldofdavidwalliams.com
He tweeted on Monday: “Those stuck at home with their kids may be able to relate to ‘The World’s Worst Children’. I’ll be releasing an audio story every day for the next 30 days for free. First up is The Terrible Triplets!”
