Liputan6.com, Jakarta – Kate Middleton is active in various social activities, especially those related to children and family. Most recently, Kate has marked the start of the Children’s Mental Health program in the UK by reading out fairytale before bed for a popular television program.
The Duchess of Cambridge recently sat down to read Jill Tomlinson’s children’s classic, ‘The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark’. This is in line with the theme of Growing Together this year.
Reporting from Mail Online, February 11, 2022, Kate is seen wearing sweater Holland Cooper Fair Isle knit beige and blue jeans at the event. The wife of Prince William chose to read the book, because the book has become a favorite of his own three children, Prince George, Prince Louis, and Princess Charlotte.
‘The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark’ tells the story of Plop, a baby owl who is helped by others to overcome his fears and instill his confidence.
Children’s Mental Health Week was first launched in 2015 by the royal-owned children’s mental health charity Place2Be. This year he encourages children and their parents or caregivers to consider how they have grown and how they can help others grow.
Patricia Hidalgo, director of BBC Children’s and Education, said in a statement she was extremely proud that Kate Middleton read CBeebies Bedtime Story as they mark the 20th anniversary of the CBeebies and CBBC channels. “This is a special and relevant story and perfectly represents the theme of this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week,” he said.

“I can’t wait to see him give his own opinion on a classic like that. I’m sure our audiences share the same opinion,” he continued.
Kate is one of a number of well-known figures who take part in the Bedtime Stories series from CBeebies. There is Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon who last week appeared on a popular children’s show. She reads ‘Extraordinary’ by Penny Harrison, which celebrates the special moment we share with friends and family.
Last year, actor Tom Hiddleston chose to read from the picture book ‘Supertato’. There was Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds who read stories from ‘Where the Wild Things Are’, and Chris Evans chose ‘Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site’.
In addition, Ed Sheeran and Tom Hardy have also appeared reading fairy tales. Program Bedtime Stories with the Duchess of Cambridge will air today, Sunday night (13/2.2022) local time on the CBeebies television channel.
Fairy Tale Theme
Fairy tales are meant for children. Therefore, in the selection of stories, there are several types of fairy tales that should not be read to the baby. “Avoid stories that contain violence, whether in the form of threats, fights, murder, or war. Also, don’t choose stories with adult content, such as dating or forced marriage,” explained Uncle Gerry, a professional storyteller in a webinar in October 2021.
He also recommends not reading fairy tales with horror and sadistic nuances, including cannibalism and torture. As for the storytelling method, the owner of the real name Gery Saleh said telling stories aloud was the most common way.
Then, don’t hesitate to get inspiration from your child. “As adults, our imaginations are not as wild as children’s, because their way of thinking is more logical, that’s why it’s important to listen to what kind of fairy tales the children want,” he said.
