Disney legend Julie Andrews is lending her iconic voice to story-times around the world.

The beloved actress and her daughter, Emma Walton Stanton, are co-hosting a new podcast called Julie’s Library. In it, the women will read and discuss a different children’s book each week.

“Each story will take us on a grand adventure,” Andrews says in a trailer for the podcast.  From an alien who's a bit nervous about trying new things to a rooster with a flair for fashion, “we'll learn so much along the way.”

Perfect for children ages 4-10 but also aimed at multi-generational family audiences, every story is brought to life through music, sound design, and special guest appearances.

“When I became a parent, I passed the love of reading on to my children. My daughter and I have co-authored over 30 books for children and young adults, and our shared passion for the power of storytelling, literacy, and the arts remains fervent,” Andrews, 84, said in a news release. “It is our hope that the stories and ideas we share on Julie’s Library will provide family listening pleasure, inspire meaningful conversations, and be a trusted resource for literary enjoyment and learning.”

The first episode of Julie’s Library launches April 29th on Apple Podcasts and other podcast platforms. Tune in every Wednesday to hear a new book.
