While at the school, Mrs. Obama read “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” by Judith Viorst to the third grade class. She later shared a story with them about being the First Lady.
“I spend a lot of time thinking about my girls and how to make their life better, and how to make your lives better, because when I come here and I see you guys, I think of my girls. I read to them just like I’m reading to you. I want you all to be good readers, and to love learning and books, because it just makes life easier for you. And that’s the best part of my day.”
