US President Barack Obama joined his wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha on the White House South Lawn yesterday to take part in a series of Easter events with children.

The theme of this year's event was "Let's Go, Let's Play, Let's Move," and was introduced by first lady Michelle Obama (and a terrifyingly giant Easter bunny).

As well as showing off his sporting prowess by taking part in games of basketball and tennis, doing some press-ups and of course joining in the traditional egg-roll, the president sat down with the children to read to them.

Picking up a copy of 'Where The Wild Things Are', the 44th president of the United States pulled some brilliantly expressive faces as he read - we don't know if he did funny voices or not, but let's hope.
