Read aloud Web show, ‘Goodnight Michigan,’ inspired by old-time radio

Storyteller Mellissa Greene
When you were a kid with a designated bedtime, was there anything better than a story read aloud from a beloved book or a tale conjured up by a parent with a great imagination? 

That and a hot glass of milk – a tradition started by my British grandmother who saw it as a soothing beverage before bed -- set the stage for a night of sweet dreams, or odd depending on the story that was told.

This week, I had the pleasure of hearing a story read by Mellissa Greene, a mother of four and host of “Goodnight Michigan,” to a group of kindergartners at St. John Lutheran Church and School in Fraser. 

If you’re looking for a funny bedtime story, Greene’s version of “Mrs. Wishy-Washy’s Christmas” by Joy Cowley is a hoot, and a cackle and a moo-moo!
