Currently, 45 children are hospitalized in the blood diseases and oncology ward of this hospital and it has been arranged that each day, 10-12 of these children along with their mothers participate in book reading sessions.
These sessions are held by one of the tutors of Taskin who has participated in the workshops of RWM on children’s literature and is familiar with the methods of holding reading aloud sessions and related activities.
The books used in these sessions have been chosen from the quality books of RWM and are compatible with the conditions of a sick child. They include books for children from 1 day old to over 13 years old which are accompanied by creative activities. The Taskin and RWM authorities hope to help children and their families to go through the tough process of healing more easily by creating moments filled with the joy of reading and happiness.
