Today the children of Tygerberg Children’s Hospital received a generous donation of 10 CD players and CD’s of children’s stories from Ruda Landman and Greer Blizzard.
Communications for the Western Cape Department of Health’s Laticia Pienaar says “children learn from story telling so they learn to listen and imagine, so they learn to concentrate and learn languages.” Each series comes in many different languages and this helps each child develop their mind in a different way.
Pienaar also says “because these children are in hospital for a long time, having these stories available in the wards will ensure that they will not miss out on important development opportunities.”
