Get ready to see even more of Michelle Obama.
The former first lady announced Friday that she will be starring in a new kids’ show on PBS, according to the Daily Caller. Titled Mondays with Michelle Obama, the children’s program is set to premiere this week, the Daily Caller reported.
Back in the spotlight
According to the Daily Caller, the show “will involve Obama reading children’s books aloud.”
In a tweet promoting the new show, PBS Kids said the “weekly read-along series” will also be broadcast on publishing company Penguin Random House’s Facebook page.
Join us for “Mondays with @MichelleObama!” In this weekly read-along series, she’ll read 4 of her favorite children’s books (one book every Monday). It begins Mon. @ 12pm ET with “The Gruffalo” on @PBSKIDS & @PenguinRandomHouse Facebook pages! #ReadTogetherBeTogether #pbskidsread pic.twitter.com/JrJ3n13pBu

Obama herself later shared the tweet, adding that she’s “thrilled to share some of my favorite children’s books and give kids an opportunity to practice their reading (while giving families a much-needed break!),” the Daily Caller reported.
Looking to November
The news of Mrs. Obama thrusting herself back into the spotlight comes just days after her husband, former President Barack Obama, finally broke his silence on the 2020 race. The 44th president threw his support behind his former vice president, Joe Biden, on Tuesday, NPR reported, though many said the endorsement was long overdue.
“Choosing Joe to be my vice president was one of the best decisions I ever made, and he became a close friend, and I believe Joe has all the qualities we need as a president right now,” the former president said in a video announcing his endorsement, according to the Daily Caller.
Biden, for his part, didn’t hesitate to play up the support.
“Barack — This endorsement means the world to Jill and me,” he wrote in a tweet Tuesday afternoon. “We’re going to build on the progress we made together, and there’s no one I’d rather have standing by my side.”
With Michelle Obama back on TV and Barack taking to Twitter in support of Uncle Joe, it’s clear that Democrats are uniting in their effort to take down President Donald Trump. But will they succeed come November?
Only time will tell.
