Geri Halliwell: Ginger Reads Riding Hood

Geri will be appearing on pre-school tv channel Nick Jr. (a division of Nickelodeon) in the UK during the month of November when she and other celebrity faces will read childrens stories as part of the Once Upon A Bedtime initiative, in support of the 2008 National Year of Reading which promotes reading among children and their parents.

The channel will host the special programmes titled A Bedtime Story; With Arnie & Barnie, where each celebrity will read a different classic children's story. Geri has been assigned to read Little Red Riding Hood. Geri says,

"I regularly read to my daughter Bluebell - it helps to settle her into a nightly routine, plus improves her imagination, vocabulary and listening skills. I especially enjoy inventing new stories and ideas with her."

Other celebrities signed on so far include tv presenter Donna Air (reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears), and former Footballers Wives star Gary Lucy (reading Beauty & The Beast).
