Ethan & Choco's Book Club

Striving to make access to books and reading a core part of the care that SuperKids receive in the hospital, with the principal premise that literacy support for children fighting cancer and other life-threatening conditions can help promote cognitive development and social connections that are part of thriving through treatment and beyond

Leave a comment

img_0368Ethan had so much fun launching Ethan & Choco’s Book Club at CHOC Children’s Hospital yesterday! We had “Real Author Read Aloud” for around 2 hours and gave away approximately 250 books! Thank you MaxLove Project for letting us join your amazing Be Super Holiday Party, and thank you to Child Life at CHOC for hosting
us! We’re so grateful for the ongoing support of Susie Alexander and Once Upon a Storybook, Barry Ackerman and KidsREAD, and Courtney Collins and Milk & Bookies. And, we were so fortunate to be able to provide storytime by five wonderful children’s authors: Alane Adams, Stacia Deutsch, Sheri Fink, C.W Greunig, and Dan Paley — thank you! Finally, thank you to Alanni’s Gift of Words Club for your donation of so many copies of such a beautiful picture book (Wookiwoo, I love you).  We loved seeing all the reading and so many books in the lobby at CHOC!
