Activist Michael Skolnik's started a Twitter movement this weekend after sharing an image of President Obama greeting three-year-old Clark Reynolds at an event celebrating Black History month.
Along with the image, snapped by White House photographer Pete Souza, Skolnik wrote: "We'll never truly be able to measure the impact that President Barack Obama has had on our children."
We'll never truly be able to measure the impact that President @BarackObama has had on our children.

Skolnik's then encouraged others to share their favourite pictures of Obama with his youngest constituents using the hashtag #ObamaAndKids.
