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’s StoryTime Online

Welcome to Ethan’s StoryTime Online!

This page features videos of kids reading aloud favorite children’s books, which were made specifically for ECBC and for hospitalized kids. The idea is to (a) provide hospitalized kids with around-the-clock access to online stories, (b) connect hospitalized kids to kids outside of the hospital, and (c) provide a fun way for youth groups, classrooms, and individual kids to get involved and support ECBC’s efforts to bring reading to kids in the hospital. If you know a child or group of kids who would like to create a read-aloud video as part of Ethan’s StoryTime Online, please click here for guidelines on how to participate! We’d love to have videos from kids around Orange County, the country, and even the world! And if you’re an adult, but a kid at heart and passionate about kids’ books, you’re welcome to participate as well! If you want help selecting a book to read aloud, click here to see Ethan’s Wish List of Fantastic Titles for RAVs.

Below is the start of our Read-Aloud Video (RAV) library. Please click on each book image to view the video!

Thank you to Girl Scout Troop #3152 for coming up with the idea to make read-aloud videos for kids in the hospital as part of your Bronze Medal award (the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve) — you inspired us to create StoryTime Online, and we’re super excited to fill up this space with kids who love to read!
