Perhaps Barack and Michelle Obama missed their calling as children’s librarians? See them reading Where the Wild Things Are here. I’ve never really been into Maurice Sendak (don’t know why, really, feel free to convince me otherwise in the comments) but I do appreciate someone who gets into reading aloud.
I’ve got a longer post brewing about some of my favorite books have read out loud to me when I was little. I’d love to hear about your favourites, too.
