What’s better than books and kids?
Putting the two together, as St. Luke’s has done now for 11 years at the Boise Barnes & Noble.
St. Luke’s again has partnered with the store on North Milwaukee Street to support literacy and in the process, give the community a peek at some of the St. Luke’s programs that incorporate reading and education. The effort also gives book fans the opportunity to support St. Luke’s pediatric patients by purchasing books, with books and a percentage of sales going to benefit St. Luke’s Children’s programs. Book displays and the donation drive will continue this week.
On Saturday, St. Luke’s team members shared information about our outreach in the schools, the educational program we maintain for young patients spending extended time with us in the hospital, our safety initiatives and our YEAH! Youth Engaged in Activities for Health activities. Children and families stopping by the displays had the chance to check out related books, make paper airplanes and learn about sound and safety.
And they let me in on the fun again this year! It’s the sixth time I’ve had the chance to be a guest reader. In 2012, there were no grandchildren; little Dean got here just in time for the party Saturday, bringing the total to five. This year’s reading selection? Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type, a Caldecott winner about a barnyard revolution.
