Millie Mackintosh has teamed up with Disney to launch new storybook collection ‘Tales of Courage and Kindness’.
The 31-year-old star has joined the likes of ‘Tangled’ actress Mandy Moore’ and ‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ star Kelly Marie Tran to read stories from the new book on Disney Junior’s YouTube channel.
The collection – which has also been backed by the likes of Katie Piper and Katarina Johnson-Thompson – includes 14 never-before-told Disney Princess tales, which are being made available for free to inspire a kinder world.
Millie – who has 11-month-old daughter Sienna with husband Hugo Taylor – said: “I have a soft spot for Disney stories, especially ‘Cinderella’; her messages of kindness are as important today as when her story was first told.
“The ‘Tales of Courage and Kindness’ story collection is a beautiful inspirational tool for parents, and I’m looking forward to sharing my love of Disney Princess stories with my daughter.”
Katie – who has Belle, seven, and Penelope, three, with husband Richard Sutton – added: “Disney’s new story collection features tales steeped in the power of kindness and the importance of having courage.
“It’s brilliant to see Disney gifting little ones with such a positive message.
“Both are key qualities which I do my best to demonstrate to my daughters every day – I think it’s every parent’s hope that their children thrive in a world filled with kindness.”
The digital book – which features unique illustrations by artists from around the world – is being gifted to kids as part of ‘Ultimate Princess Celebration’, a new, global campaign championing the qualities of courage and kindness.
The storybook will also be available in select schools across the UK as part of the ‘Into Film and Disney’s Ultimate Princess Celebration: Kindness Quest’ learning resource.
Families around the world can download the storybook for free at DisneyPrincessStories.co.uk.
And in the UK, Katie and Millie’s readings will be made available to seriously ill children in hospitals and hospices through Disney’s long-term charitable partners.
