Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon to read CBeebies Bedtime Story



Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon is to become the first Best Actress Oscar winner to take to the CBeebies Bedtime Stories seat, as she reads Extraordinary written by Penny Harrison.

The book, illustrated by Katie Wilson, shows how you can discover beautiful and wonderful things, wherever you look – if you just look closely enough.

Opening the story Reese says: “Sometimes, when we’re busy, it can be hard to find time to notice the world around us. The things we see every day can seem a bit… ordinary. But if you stop, and look closer, you’ll see that our world is extraordinary!

As she sends the young audience off to bed, Reese encourages them to look closely at something the following day that may at first appear ordinary and they might also discover something magical!

Reese follows a raft of other famous faces to read a Bedtime Story including Ryan Reynolds, Tom Hardy, actor Chris Evans, Regé-Jean Page, Felicity Jones, David Schwimmer, Alesha Dixon, Eddie Redmayne, Orlando Bloom, Sir Elton John and Dolly Parton.

CBeebies Bedtime Stories is on each weekday at 6.50pm on the CBeebies channel and is also available on BBC iPlayer. Reese Witherspoon’s CBeebies Bedtime Story will air at 6.50pm, Friday 28 January.
