President Obama hosted the annual White House Easter Egg Roll in Washington, D.C. today, but pushing eggs across the lawn was hardly the main attraction for most of the pint-size guests.

We're guessing most of the swooning tween set was more excited about pop phenomenon Justin Bieber, and the younger tots were psyched to see the casts of "Yo Gabba Gabba" and "Sesame Street" hit the stage.

A slew of famous figures were on hand to read at the Storytime Stage, including Olympian Apolo Anton Ohno, actress Mariska Hargitay and queen of all things Hogwarts, J.K. Rowling. Even President Obama's mother-in-law, Marian Robinson, was on the reading roster.

In keeping with first lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" initiative, the theme of this year's event was "Ready, Set, Go!" and activities encouraged children to lead healthy and active lives.

Roll on, kids. Roll on.
