Books on Film: The Obama Family Reads “Amos McGee”

books on film banner1 Books on Film: The Obama Family Reads Amos McGee

Amos had some good friends. They were looking out for him.

- Barack Obama

Picture books spotted in the wild! The first family sat down at the annual White House Easter Egg Hunt for a bit of story time. Sasha and Malia read 2011 Caldecott winner A Sick Day for Amos McGee, and the president follows up with an old favorite of his (as you can see in this post from 2009), Where the Wild Things Are.
