Project Sunshine Book Club Volunteers Visit Lincoln Hospital in NY

Project Sunshine Volunteer - Sally Book, Book Club

On June 9, Sally Cook, author and special advisor to Project Sunshine´s Book Club and Caralyn Friedman, a Project Sunshine summer intern, went to Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx. Sally, Caralyn and Lincoln´s Child Life Specialist, Valerie Miles, took turns reading a large-formatted copy of Good Night, Pillow Fight, written by Sally Cook and illustrated by Laura Cornell, while children chimed in, pointed, and giggled. The group travelled from room to room of the pediatrics unit providing children with books to keep and baseball-themed Craft Kits made by volunteers from American Express. Sally and Caralyn left the hospital buoyed by the smiles and laughter of Lincoln's brave pediatric patients and their families
