President and Mrs. Obama Read to DC Schoolchildren

Since we are all about books and reading at First Book, we couldn’t have been happier to see that the Obamas are all about reading, too.

So many of us know that we should read to our kids 20 minutes a day, but it is nice to see a “should do” remains a “can do” for the First Family.

When we forget the pleasure and fun of reading as an activity we lose a bit of the magic it offers. We applaud the idea that in a busy country of instantly connected networks and technologies with all too often fractured family time, one family took the time to share the simple, timeless joy of reading with kids who now have the best reason to read…even the President is doing it!
