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

Ethan & Choco’s Book Club is a new student club at Foothill High School!

These awesome girls just started an Ethan & Choco’s Club at Foothill High School — the first of hopefully many school-based clubs to support ECBC and reading for hospitalized kids! The three of us met this afternoon, and the girls decided to focus their club’s efforts on building the teen part of our library — including the lending and gifting libraries, themed books for teens at various events such as our upcoming Books for Treats, and Read+Think+Thrive boxes that are curated specifically for teens. They also are excited to work on creating an Amazon Wish List of high-interest books specifically for teens — which we really need help with! How great would it be for them to draw from their own reading interests and experiences as well as the reading interests of their peers to create this list! There is a significant number of adolescents and young adults at CHOC, and it will be great to have some targeted support to build this important part of our library!
Foothill High’s Club Rush is coming up next week, and Riley and Aya will be promoting this club and recruiting new members. Please tell your teen if you think he/she might be interested in joining. Or suggest they they start their own ECBC Club at their own school! (Contact Ali Posner at ECBC@maxloveproject.org if interested.)
THANK YOU RILEY and AYA for taking the initiative and hopefully creating a movement for high schools and teens to support reading for hospitalized teens! #FoothillKnights #ECBCatFoothillHigh #BetterTogether #ItTakesACommunity #ReadThinkThrive #HospitalizedKidsNeedBooksToo
