The actor will read Everybody’s Welcome, written by Patricia Hegarty and illustrated by Greg Abbott, to be shown on Friday 17 August.
It tells the story of a little mouse who dreams of building a home where he can welcome those in need, a home where everybody’s welcome, no matter who they are or where they come from. He learns that if they work as a team, they can build a house to keep everyone safe and warm, where they all feel they belong.
Ewan McGregor says: “It’s such an honour and pleasure to join an incredible list of actors to read a CBeebies Bedtime Story to children all over the uk. I had a great time filming and I hope everyone enjoys watching it.”
The story reflects CBeebies’ ethos of Everyone’s Welcome At CBeebies, celebrating diversity, inclusiveness and kindness.
