September 12. The twelfth way that ECBC has helped hospitalized kids thrive through treatment is through our Super Book Give Aways, which happen in the CHOC lobby alongside MaxLove Project’s Be Super Parties. During these lobby parties, cancer warriors and their siblings generally come to the lobby specifically to craft with MaxLove, but ECBC has usually succeeded in luring kids over to our mobile book cart so they can select one to several books to keep as ECBC volunteers reiterate the importance of reading while in the hospital. Sometimes during these events ECBC has also hosted a storytime followed by a book-inspired craft — which is especially powerful because literature-based art activities help children to think creatively and more deeply about what they read.
