Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having a great week. Coming up tomorrow, July 30th, is International Friendship Day! It’s a day when we get to celebrate our friends and let them know just how special they are to us. And in honor of Friendship Day, Beary Bruised and I wrote a poem all about friendship. We hope you like it!
They say “friends forever.”
But what does that mean?
It means a companion if you’re feeling blue.
It means a buddy if you want to play.
It means a partner if you want to explore.
It means an ear if you want someone to listen.
It means I’m there with you, friend.
Be sure to tell your friends just how much they mean to you! And don’t forget…have a critterrific friendship-filled day!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having an awesome week. And speaking of awesome, coming up on Friday, July 24th, is National Cousins Day! This is a day when we get to celebrate our cousins and tell them how much they mean to us. Perhaps you only see your cousins at family events, or maybe you see your cousins every day. No matter how often you get to spend time with your cousins, and no matter where they live, this Friday is the perfect day to call them up and tell them how much you appreciate them. And if you don’t have any cousins, that’s okay! You probably have some “honorary cousins” who are people you consider family. Whether these are friends from school or perhaps a godparent or close family friend, National Cousins Day is really about celebrating the amazing people in your life.
Happy National Cousins Day, friends!
Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having a wonderful week. Summer is in full swing, and I have a whole list of books that I want to read over the break. How about you? Sometimes books are assigned to us to read during the summer by our teacher, but other times I like to pick out a book of my own to read. Whether it’s a novel, a book of poetry, or even a collection of short stories, it’s always fun to find something new and different.
What books are you reading this summer? We think you should read Hospital Critterz: The Prairie Pet by Stacey Laura Lloyd. We know you’ll like it! It’s packed with adventure, fun, and mystery. Plus, I’m in it! (Max and the Hospital Critterz are in it, too!)
So don’t forget…have a critterrific reading-filled day (and summer)!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having a great week. Fishy Kitty and I are excited to announce that today is Video Games Day! Plus, there’s even a National Video Games Day that falls on September 12th. Since there are two days dedicated to celebrating video games, I think it shows just how awesome, fun, and exciting video games can be. And don’t forget educational! Some of my favorite video games are centered around math and solving different kinds of puzzles and mysteries. What are some of your favorite video games? Be sure to let us know! I would love to create my own video game. I think it would be centered around all of the adventures with the Hospital Critterz!
Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope your first day of July is full of laughter! Why? Because today is International Joke Day! In honor of this awesome day, I have some jokes just for you that are guaranteed to tickle your funny bone. And since the Fourth of July is right around the corner, I thought that my jokes should be about the holiday. Enjoy!
How do American flags say hello? They wave!
What should you write with on the Fourth of July? An independence.
What’s red, white, blue, and yellow? A patriotic duck.
Where’s the Liberty Bell located? In Philabellphia.
How do you get into the Statue of Liberty? You use the liberkey.
Be sure to send us your Fourth of July jokes. And don’t forget…have a critterrific (and safe) Fourth of July!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having an awesome week. Coming up on this Friday, June 26th, is Take Your Dog to Work Day! Now’s your chance to bring your dog with you to your office, and it sounds like a doggone good time! We love it when dogs come and visit us at the hospital, and they even do tricks for us. As you can guess, Kwon Do is super excited about Take Your Dog to Work Day. He can’t wait to make new friends. When it comes to dogs, he thinks it’s the more the merrier…but I think it’s the more the hairier…or maybe it’s even the more the terrier!
Here’s wishing you a Take Your Dog to Work Day that’s really top dog!
Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having a wonderful day. Did you know that June is National Rose Month? Cherry Ot told me that on November 20th in 1986, President Ronald Reagan named the rose the official flower of the United States. It’s probably because roses are so beautiful! Plus, many states have the rose as their state flower. I learned that Georgia has the Cherokee rose, New York has the rose, and Iowa and North Dakota have the wild prairie rose. It’s true that I love roses, especially their lovely smell, but as you probably guessed, my favorite flower is the lily!
We hope you have a critterrific rose-filled month!
