Michelle Obama read two books about animals for "Mondays with Michelle Obama" for PBS Kids: “Giraffe Problems” and “The Bear Ate Your Sandwich,” with the former president joining her for the second reading. 

PBS posted a video of the program on its Instagram page. 


The former first lady has hosted the weekly virtual story time since mid-April as schools across the country remain closed and children confined to their homes amid the coronavirus pandemic. The program was launched by PBS Kids in partnership with Penguin Young Readers and Random House Children’s Books. 

The Obamas also joined together to read children’s books last week as part of a video posted on Twitter for the Chicago Public Library. 

The Obamas said in a caption with the video, “Michelle and I want to do our part to give all you parents a break today.”
