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

Outpatient Infusion Center (OPI) delivery

Keeping these shelves stocked with books at CHOC Children’s Hospital OPI is fun!  These shelves were always empty for the 3.5 that Ethan received his outpatient chemo here! Nothing fancy and the easiest part of ECBC to keep going , but it’s just as rewarding as the other programs we do. Every time we return the shelves are empty — it’s good to know that at least a small part of kids’ visits might include some reading instead of screen time!!

Thank you ECBC volunteers!

This is a quick shout-out to ECBC’s amazing group of “expert reader” volunteers who helped bring books and reading to patients at CHOC Children’s Hospital this month. Our volunteers offered bedside reading with high-quality literature in patients’ rooms, gave away new books from our mobile Gifting Library Cart to patients in isolation, gifted holiday-themed books as part of MaxLove’s holiday Be Super Party, and delivered 100+ books to CHOC’s Outpatient Infusion Center. December is such a busy month for everyone — thank you Susie, Sandy, Cindi, Julie, Debbie, and Fenny for making the time to make sure that the kiddos at CHOC receive some reading and a new book this holiday season!
