What to expect

If you are looking for some virtual storytelling with a touch of royal magic, we have just what you are looking for! Fergie, AKA Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, has launched her own virtual storytelling session for kids. Storytelling is one of the best ways to spark imaginations and creativity and inspire and  from an early age. You can watch Fergie's reading a traditional children’s story each day at 4pm on YouTube and Facebook. She'll be reading both her own stories and others, including much-loved books: The Tiger Who Came To Tea, Spot Says Please, Peace At Last and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Fergie will also occasionally be joined by special guests. Recent appearances include Stephen Fry, Paige Rowlinson and David Gower.

You can expect up to 10 minutes of wonderful storytelling and a whole heap of fun from this famous storyteller. And on Saturdays, you can expect an even longer storytime! And if this time doesn't fit in with your schedule, don't worry, the stories are always available to watch on again on Fergie's YouTube and Facebook page. So sit back, relax and make this storytelling session part of your daily routine.

At Kidadl we pride ourselves on offering families original ideas to make the most of time spent together at home or out and about, wherever you are in the world. We strive to recommend the very best things that are suggested by our community and are things we would do ourselves - our aim is to be the trusted friend to parents.

We try our very best, but cannot guarantee perfection. We will always aim to give you accurate information at the date of publication - however, information does change, so it’s important you do your own research, double-check and make the decision that is right for your family.

Kidadl provides inspiration to entertain and educate your children. We recognise that not all activities and ideas are appropriate and suitable for all children and families or in all circumstances. Our recommended activities are based on age but these are a guide. We recommend that these ideas are used as inspiration, that ideas are undertaken with appropriate adult supervision, and that each adult uses their own discretion and knowledge of their children to consider the safety and suitability.

Kidadl cannot accept liability for the execution of these ideas, and parental supervision is advised at all times, as safety is paramount. Anyone using the information provided by Kidadl does so at their own risk and we can not accept liability if things go wrong.
