It’ll be pure poetry all this month on the Disney Channel’s Disney Junior as well as the new 24-hour Disney Junior channel. To celebrate National Poetry Month, folks like Jennifer Garner, Laura Linney, Katie Holmes, Vanessa Williams, Whoopi Goldberg, Kenneth Branagh, Jessica Alba, Owen Wilson, Liev Schreiber and John Leguizamo will be reading poetry to the kiddies through April 21. These poems will be narrated in tandem with classic Disney animation as part of “A Poem Is …,” a short-form series via the network.
We all know how important reading is to Jennifer Garner — she and her adorable daughters (Violet, 5, and Seraphina, 2) are always spotted out and about with books in hand.
So it’s no surprise the Emmy-nominated actress jumped at the chance to narrate Disney‘s “A Poem Is” video series.
Garner lent her voice to a Mother’s Song, a folk lullaby from the late 1800s that describes maternal love, which you and your child can view at disneyjunior.com.
But the mom-of-two isn’t the only celeb parent to participate. Katie Holmes also narrated Mice, a poem by Rose Fyleman.
And Whoopi Goldberg and Alfred Molina are the latest additions. You can watch their video shorts on Disney Junior TV channel all this week (check local listings for times). Or you can view them on Disney Junior’s Youtube channel.
