Books for Treats


I love Halloween, it’s fun, it’s playful, kids wait all year to dress up and collect candy door to door or attend their favorite Harvest Festival. For some kids in the hospital, this day must take on a different method of getting in on the fun. This is where Ethan’s “Book for Treats” comes in!

Ethan, creator of Ethan and Choco’s Book Club, knows first hand what it’s like to be in the hospital on Halloween. This brave young man has a goal and you can help me reach it while providing a treat to some kids within our community. Ethan is looking to collect 300 Halloween-themed books for kids who are inpatient at CHOC Children’s Hospital during Halloween!

There are several ways to donate to this cause. You can visit our local children’s book store Once Upon a Storybook and purchase a book, then just leave it in the “Ethan & Choco’s Book Club Basket” (they have an awesome Halloween display as well) and/or you can take a look at Ethan’s Halloween Wish Book list that is available on Amazon http://a.co/1o8eo3B  – any books purchased through Amazon will be sent directly to ECBC.

This is a great way to give back and bring a smile to a kids face. Happy Halloween!

Book Fair!

Troop #3152 & Ethan

Did you know there are NO Hospitals in California with libraries for Children? Children can play video games, get toys to play with, visits from therapy dogs but there are no books! This is where you can help make a difference!

As part of my Junior Girl Scouts Bronze project they have teamed up with my favorite Children’s Book store, Once Upon A Storybook to host a Book Fair to benefit Ethan & Choco’s Book Club.
