30,000 people from all 50 states and DC visited the South Lawn of the White House today for this year’s Easter Egg Roll. There was singing, dancing, reading and, of course, plenty of Easter egg rolling.
More than a dozen readers stopped by the Storytime Stage to share favorite children's book with kids gathered on the South Lawn. All of the books read on the Storytime Stage were checked out from DC public libraries, and will be returned on time! See some of the highlights:
Author J.K. Rowling reads from her book "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone."
Actress Reese Witherspoon reads "The Best Pet of All" by David Larochelle.
President Obama reads “Green Eggs and Ham” by Dr. Seuss.
Actors Cole & Dylan Sprouse read "Jeremy Draws a Monster" by Peter McCarty.
