Each year, our nation’s president and his family enjoy the White House Easter Egg Roll on their lawn along with thousands of visitors! This year, President Obama, his wife Michelle, and daughters Malia and Sasha entertained 30,000 children and parents on Easter Sunday. There were tons of festivities, special guest stars, and plenty of sunshine. It appears that a good time was had by all, especially during the book reading the whole First Family took part in. Our personal favorite book reading was of Eric Carle’s Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? Not only is this one of our all time favorite children’s books, but being proud producers of this timeless artwork, we couldn’t be more pleased to see Eric Carle’s Brown Bear at the White House!
It feels good to see nostalgia and fond favorites being honored with special traditions. Not only does the tradition of the Easter Egg Roll book readings enforce the importance of literacy and the excitement of a good book, it’s good wholesome fun for the whole family. We hope you get the opportunity to share one of our all time favorites with your little ones, nieces, nephews, cousins, neighbors kids, students, acquaintances, you get the idea.
