ComicBooks For Kids! provides comic books to kids in hospitals and cancer centers predominantly in the US . Perhaps the best overview comes from a child life recipient in Shand's Children's Hospital who sent us this email. I just wanted to send a quick thank you email for the comic books we received. I cannot tell you how grateful our program is for receiving this package as it was suitable for various ages and provided a fun and therapeutic activity for patients and families during their hospitalization. I know that I have used this on my pediatric floor with children who are waiting for a procedure or surgery and have had success in distracting and redirecting their attention with these books to alleviate anticipatory stress and anxiety. I have used this with long term teens who can be hard to engage with and have built great rapport with them over the characters and story line – I have even created bedside activities with some patients where it inspired them to make their own comic book! I surely appreciate all that you and ComicBooks for Kids does. Thank you again
