President Obama reads Where the Wild Things Are

I love how President Obama and his family help kids get interested in reading by actually reading picture books to children. It’s wonderful!! Know any other famous people or celebrities who encourage literacy? Especially via children’s books? Let me know.

Thanks to @TeachingBooks on Twitter and Lisa Gold: Research Maven for the link.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
