"Bubbles" Turning Pages Book Party

She made bubbles using everything from a hula hoop to Crocs to a plastic strawberry container. She made bubbles in bubbles including one with Susan Tetzlaff inside!

Each patient was given a book about bubbles as well as bubbles and wands. Susan Tetzlaff and Nancy Campbell were on hand to bring bubbles and books to patients unable to make it to the activity center.

This event was part of the Turning Pages literacy program at the Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital. It was made possible through our donation from the CCSA Legacy Fund. We have several more book parties in the works and volunteers are always welcome!
