GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) Bedtime rituals are important, especially when children are out of their environment – like in a hospital. Being in the hospital can disrupt family life, but Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital has a solution that brings some normalcy and promotes reading and a good night’s sleep.
The Tuck-in Cart is a cart loaded with books, fleece blankets, and stuffed animals. Volunteers bring the cart to children’s rooms, tuck them in, and read them a story. Barnes and Noble donated books for all ages and interests. Billy Bear Hug Foundation donated the stuffed animals and individuals and groups donated the blankets.
