Watch Still Game's Sanjeev Kohli read the next in our series of stories for children and families

Still Game actor, Sanjeev Kohli, is the next celebrity to join our Give the Love of Reading Campaign with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

As a creative writer and book-lover Sanjeev Kohli says he is thrilled to back the partnership by reading 'Billy and the Beast' by Nadia Shireen.

Sanjeev said “My kids are older now, but I used to love to read to them and I know they enjoyed it too. There’s no better sensation than seeing the light in their eyes when their imagination has been fired. It’s magical. And this book is riddled with that magic” 

Reading is a passion of mine, so I’m beyond delighted to be supporting this new initiative by Children 1st and the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. I love the fact that I am getting to read this month’s bedtime story for you all. 

We are delighted to have support from Sanjeev – and we hope that other avid readers will join him in supporting our campaign to ‘Give the love of reading’ to children in Scotland, who would otherwise miss out.
