Jeremy Corbyn took some respite from campaigning for the snap general election to read stories to young children, and he pulled some incredible faces while doing so.

The Labour leader was pictured reading a book to a group of schoolchildren, and it’s clear he makes for a very dramatic story teller.

Showing off an impressive repertoire of powerful facial expressions, he read aloud We’re Going on a Bear Hunt – which was written by his good friend Michael Rosen.

It comes as he announced he will seek to turn the election spotlight onto schools, as well as hospitals and the economy, rather than just Brexit.

After a two-week policy blitz on education, wages and welfare, Mr Corbyn confronted Theresa May in the Commons as she laid the motion asking MPs to vote for a General Election on June 8.

He pledged that Labour would make Britain a country “for all” and not “run for the rich”.

At the start of his General Election campaign, Mr Corbyn said the public has a chance to choose a government that supports wealth creators – “not just the wealth extractors”.

He mocked the Prime Minister for justifying the snap election by “painting herself as a prisoner” of MPs trying to derail Brexit.

Speaking to the Standard, he said: “Britain is being held back — and this election is about the state of crisis into which this government has put our National Health Service, the cuts made to schools, which will limit the chances of every child in Britain, four million of whom now live in poverty.

“Labour offers a better future. We want richer lives for all, not a country run for the rich.”
