Could this children's book reading “bee” more chaotic?

President Barack Obama’s reading of “Where the Wild Things Are” at the annual Easter Egg Roll was interrupted by bees, prompting screams from the crowd of children.

“Bees are good, they won’t land on you,” Obama reassured the children. “They won’t sting you, they’ll be OK.”
