"To round out the end of another great #MakeMarchMatter campaign, on Thursday, March 21st, CHLA patients and their families were treated to a very special 'Literally Healing' story time with Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex," read the hospital post on IG.

Not only did Meghan read for the children, but she also got to try out fun activities with them. 

"With literacy, development and fun in mind, the mom of two also helped kids with activities tied to each book that let kids explore counting, colours, problem-solving and more," continued the post. 

The hospital went on to explain the initiative of Literally Healing, where patients are allowed to read as a way of assisting them in their stay in hospital.
