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

Thank you to Foothill High School Ethan & Choco’s Club!

ECBC is so grateful for having received 22 new terrific books for teens for our gifting library program at CHOC from the Foothill Ehan & Choco Club! More importantly, thank you Taylor Kubaska and Aya McNamee for starting the club this year — this was our first high school club! Hopefully after you graduate, others will follow in your steps as co-presidents, as it is really awesome to receive support at the high school level and to receive book donations that target teens!

If there are other teens out there who are interested in supporting reading for hospitalized kids/teens and starting an Ethan & Choco’s Club at their high school, please email ECBC at Ali@ECbookclub.com.

Thank you Foothill Ethan & Choco Club for your awesome donation, and a huge thank you to Riley and Aya for taking the initiative to found this club!

In this video, Ethan’s asks for books for teens and young adults. Please check out his video and consider donating.

*Please keep in mind that we will ALWAYS need hardcover and paperback books for our permanent Lending Library and our special situations (including patients in isolation) Gifting Libraries at CHOC. The link to our General Wish List for our hospital libraries is ECBC’s General Wish List.

Thank you for supporting ECBC’s book and reading programs for hospitalized kids!

Kids Helping Kids: Max’s Book Review Blog for Teens

Please check out my 8th grade nephew Max’s well-written and smart book review blog, called “Bookmarkers“!  Max has always loved to read and talk about books, and now he’s working on supporting ECBC with his blog and corresponding Amazon Wish List. Max reviews books for teens and young adults, which is a significant population of patients at CHOC yet the age group for which we have the fewest books! Please check out his blog, consider donating a book off his list, and even use this growing list for book ideas for your own teens!
