Chris Evans Reads A Children's Book To Help Kids During School Closure

Marvel star Chris Evans continues to prove that he's a real-life Captain America- and possibly a future presidential candidate? Evans' latest act of real-life heroism is getting on social media to read children's books to kids. With millions of children all over the globe now forced to stay at home from school, due to the novel Coronavirus Pandemic, they also miss out on critical services. It's not just the educational resources children are missing - it's also resources like childcare and food, which some kids only get from school. Chris Evans is just one of many celebrities trying to raise awareness about the deeper impact of school closures - and he's doing a pretty good job of it!
