Ladybird: Little Big Moments

Little Big Moments

Even when we’re apart, stories can be a virtual hug.

Through the power of bedtime stories, Ladybird is helping to connect children with those family members who they can’t see right now: whether that’s an isolated grandparent, a much-missed cousin, a key worker big sibling, a parent who lives in a different home, or somebody else!

Every day, we’ll send a pair of matching books to a separated duo so they can still settle down for storytime together, over the phone or on a video call.
