Michelle Obama Surprised Kids At A DTLA School During Storytime

We don’t know what your morning consisted of, but we bet an Obama didn’t grace you with their presence.

When you’ve lived in the City of Stars long enough, casual encounters with celebrities start to lose their glitz and glam. But every now and then, no matter deep you’ve tucked away your inner fan-girl, you may just stumble upon someone who blows your mind.

Earlier this morning, Michelle Obama surprised a group of kids at a school near skid row. The former first lady was in Los Angeles as part of her Becoming book tour, but decided to make a pit-stop to read The Gruffalo to a group of four-year-olds at Para Los Niños Early Education Center.

Mrs. Obama has a partnership with the Child 360/First Book initiative whose mission is to emphasize the importance of reading to young children.

The V.P. of early education programs at Para Los Niños, Angela Capone, said to LAist that “[The children] know that someone very important took time out of her day to come and read stories to them and she did it in the most wonderful of ways. Clearly, she told them that they were the most important people in the room, not her. I think it’s something that will make a difference for us for a long while.”
