Michelle Obama's public posts

Like so many of you, I’m pained by these recent tragedies. And I’m exhausted by a heartbreak that never seems to stop. Right now it’s George, Breonna, and Ahmaud. Before that it was Eric, Sandra, and Michael. It just goes on, and on, and on.

Race and racism is a reality that so many of us grow up learning to just deal with. But if we ever hope to move past it, it can’t just be on people of...

Last year, I celebrated 50 years of Sesame Street with Big Bird, Grover, and the whole gang. This year, I am as proud as ever of Sesame Workshop, especially as they provide new resources for families looking to encourage learning from home. sesamestreet.org/caring

It's been such a joy spending my Mondays reading with all of you.

I hope you and your child continue to read at home this summer!

To round out the series, we'll spend today reading “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” and...

It takes courage to share our stories with the world. Before my memoir was published, I started to think that maybe opening up about my own struggles wasn’t such a good idea. I worried about how I’d be received, or whether I was sharing too much. But after talking with so many of you across the country and around the world, I can tell you that making myself vulnerable led to some of the most...

Barack and I had so much fun reading “The Word Collector” for a family read-a-long through the Chicago Public Library. This book is one of my favorites—it brings me back to being a little kid, making my way through the stacks at our neighborhood library, discovering new worlds, and losing myself in the magic of words. I hope you and your children enjoy it as much as we did.

Today, I’ll be reading one of my favorites: “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle.

This book holds a special place in my heart––I used to read it to my girls when they were little, and it was one of their favorite bedtime books. I hope you and your child enjoy reading along today!
