Ed Sheeran is set to make his debut as the CBeebies Bedtime Story reader next month.
He will be reading I Talk Like a River by Jordan Scott and Sydney Smith, about a boy with a stutter, whose father helps him by explaining that the flow of his words is like a river.
“Growing up, I had a stutter like the boy in I Talk Like a River, so I’m delighted to be reading this story for CBeebies Bedtime Stories, especially as I’m a new dad myself. I hope the story helps inspire and support other children who stutter,” said Sheeran.
Ed Sheeran’s CBeebies Bedtime Story will be broadcast on Friday 5th November.
