David Tennant Narrates New Children's Animated Story For Think Equal

David Tennant is one of a host of film and TV stars who have come together to narrate a collection of new animated stories for families with children aged six and under.

EQlicious features 12 digital stories and 60 activities – including songs, art and games – designed to boost self-esteem and communication skills, alongside celebrating diversity, emotional literacy and kindness, and offer help with mental health.

David narrates Helping Hands which looks at the importance of community and explores societal norms around gender roles.

Dame Emma Thompson reads about the body and the soul in Head, Heart and Hands and Stephen Fry introduces children to a First Nation community in Kitchi’s Moccasins. Olivia Colman narrates The Tale of Baby Beetroot, the adventures of a tiny beetroot in a big garden, handling big life changes, while Richard E. Grant’s okapi character learns about the power of being unique in Is There Anyone Like Me?

Dame Helen Mirren, Dame Harriet Walter, Succession actor Matthew Macfayden, Harry Potter thespian Noma Dumezweni, performer Shabana Azmi, author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and comedian Ruby Wax also provide their voices to narrate stories for the collection.

Developed by Think Equal, an award-winning non-profit endorsed by Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, Montessori Europe, and UNICEF, EQlicious aims to offer fun and practical, long-term solutions to issues like mental health, discrimination, abuse, violence, and inequality.

The full EQlicious collection of stories and activities are available to purchase for £49 from here.

For every set purchased, a full set will be donated to five children in South Africa, Mexico or India.
