First Lady Melania Trump did her best Sunday to keep the White House Easter traditions alive, sharing a video in which she read “The Little Rabbit” aloud.
“Happy Easter! While I am not able to read to children during the #WHEasterEggRoll, I would still like to honor the annual tradition & share a reading from one of my favorite Easter’s books – ‘The Little Rabbit,'” she tweeted.

What would have been the 142nd annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, but in previous years, first ladies — and others within the president’s family and administration — have stepped up to read traditional Easter stories and other kids books to the children who attend the festivities.
