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

CHOC Holiday Book Deliveries

We just completed the last of our holiday book donations with these deliveries to CHOC inpatient oncology and neurology kids on the 5th floor as well as for CHOC’s outpatient oncology kiddos visiting the infusion center and the clinic. Three hundred wonderful holiday-themed books that will hopefully result in lots of reading and reading aloud! A huge thank you to all our amazing donors!

ECBC’s First Holiday Book Donation of the Season

We just delivered our first of several holiday book donations to CHOC Children’s Hospital! This one went to the Outpatient Infusion Center, where kids (largely oncology patients) spend a couple hours to all day for infusions– we re-stocked our outpatient library cart with almost 200 December holiday-themed books! We just love spreading some literary joy with high-quality books that look fun enough to get kids to put their screens down for just a bit!

We have a few more holiday book gifting commitments in the coming weeks — including to CHOC’s inpatient side and to Miracle Manor (Miracles for Kids’ subsidized housing for CHOC patients and families). Our deadlines for delivery are coming up in the 10 -12 days and we’ll need to purchase books soon to fill gaps — so PLEASE donate now/soon if you can!!!

Click HERE to donate a book for patients and siblings living at Miracle Manor (books on this list are selected/curated for specific kids based on each child’s age and interest).

It’s Giving Tuesday! Please help!

ECBC needs December holiday-themed books for our December book deliveries to kids at CHOC Children’s Hospital. Rather than making a monetary donation, please consider donating just one book from our Holiday Book Wish (link below). All books purchased from this list will be sent directly to ECBC and nameplates with donor name. THANK YOU in advance for supporting ECBC’s gifting programs which have been greatly amplified during Covid (because we still haven’t been able to run our volunteer-based inpatient reading programs).

Click HERE to access the holiday book wish list and donate.
