One grandmother in Iowa has made it her mission to make sure every child has a bedtime story before they drift off to sleep.

Grandma Bette of Ankeny, Iowa reads bedtime stories each night on Facebook, and has grown to a fanbase of nearly 400 fans, all online.

According to KCRG, Grandma Bette's granddaughter films her reading and posts it online.

The 83-year-old says this is about more than just reading a story every night.

"Some of the people who lost a mom or their grandma would come and give me a hug, and they cried and teared up for them too, and I said well I can help you I’ll be happy to be a Grandma Bette for you,"
