Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having a great week. Today is International Museum Day! And that means there’s no better time to visit a museum with your family, go on a class field trip, and find a new museum in your area. There are all sorts of museums containing interesting artifacts, objects, and information, whether it’s a museum that contains art, cars, planes, or is simply honoring an event, theme, or part of history. Museums play an important role in our lives because they’re able to show and teach us about topics we may not know about, and in some cases, they highlight people who shouldn’t be forgotten and events that changed the world. And now with today’s technology, you can travel to museums with simply a click of the mouse instead of flying across the country or globe. How cool is that?
We hope you have an exciting and informative International Museum Day! You can learn more about this special day here.
Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having a great week. For today’s post, I wanted to focus on the importance of dreaming big. No matter how old you are, it’s never too late (or too early!) to start dreaming about the things that you’d like to accomplish in the future. Don’t be afraid to set goals for yourself that you’d like to achieve one day, no matter how impossible they may seem. Do you want to be a veterinarian when you grow up? You can! Do you want to learn how to speak French? Start now! By taking small steps, you can get closer to your goal each and every day. Plus, the bigger your dreams, the more exciting it’ll be when you make them a reality!
Keep dreaming, friends. And don’t forget…have a critterrific day!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I’m excited to announce that today is National Teacher Appreciation Day! Lily and I are so thankful for all of the amazing teachers who have helped us learn and grow. We are so grateful to have their encouragement and support. Teachers have shaped and changed all of our lives, and we are so lucky to have their unwavering dedication.
Who are the teachers who have impacted your life? Today’s the perfect day to let them know how much you appreciate their hard work and commitment to help us expand our minds in new and interesting ways.
From everyone here at McPopper Children’s Hospital, we’d like to give a special thank you to all of the teachers across the country. We are so thankful for all that you do!
Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having a great week. Today I wanted to focus on how important it is to never give up. There may be times when you’re faced with challenges, and things may be hard and difficult, but that doesn’t mean you can’t achieve what you’d like to achieve. Sometimes you have to risk failing in order to accomplish something, but the only way you can learn and grow is by taking that leap. Never stop believing in yourself! You are truly special and unique. When you have faith in yourself and your abilities, the sky’s the limit!
And don’t forget…have a critterrific day!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having an awesome day. April is National Poetry Month! And I have so many favorite poets, including Shel Silverstein, Jack Prelutzky, A.A. Milne, and X.J. Kennedy. Do you have any favorite poets? The great thing about poetry is that you can tell a story, introduce an idea, and describe all sorts of things however you’d like. There are no rules when it comes to poetry! You can never be wrong. Your poem can rhyme if you want it to, but it doesn’t have to. It can be really long or really short. It can be about anything and everything. And you can even write a poem from the point of view of an animal or an object, like a goldfish or a clock!
We hope you read and write a lot of poems this month!
Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having an awesome day. Did you know that tomorrow is International Moment of Laughter Day? And as you probably guessed, Dr. Duck Ling is super-duper excited. He just loves telling jokes so much that tomorrow is one of his favorite days of the entire year! He is going to put on a stand-up comedy show in the playroom for me, Max, Nurse Samantha, and the rest of the Hospital Critterz. I wonder what jokes he’s going to tell…I can’t wait to laugh! Or really, “quack” up!
We hope you have a truly critterrific International Moment of Laughter Day. Be sure to post your jokes on our blog!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having an awesome day. Speaking of awesome, did you happen to watch the Men’s NCAA Tournament championship game where Villanova played the University of North Carolina? It was a game like no other, because Villanova’s player, Kris Jenkins, hit a buzzer-beater three-pointer to win the game. I’ve never seen a shot like that before. It was unbelievable…except that I saw it so I believe it! Congratulations to both teams for such a memorable game and terrific tournament. It was so fun to watch. I can’t wait until next year’s March Madness!
Bye for now!
