Barack Obama Shows Off His 'Wild Side' With Michelle (PICTURES)

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.
