President Obama and his daughters Malia and Sasha helped support small businesses on Saturday, Nov. 30 by shopping at a bookstore in Northwest Washington.

The family made several purchases at the Politics and Prose bookstore on Small Business Saturday, which is designated as the Saturday during Thanksgiving weekend to boost sales at small businesses across the country. This year marks the third in a row that Obama has supported the event.

“I’ve got books in every age group from 5 to 52,” the president said as he paid for his items.

Among the Obamas’ long list of book selections were “The Kite Runner,” ”Harold and the Purple Crayon” and “The Sports Gene.”

Obama also tweeted about the significance of supporting small businesses.
