Belly Laughs Make Kids Better

The Clown Doctor

Now this silly clown pretending to be a doctor knows a secret. He knows that some of the best medicine comes disguised as laughter. He knows that when things aren't going the way you'd like them to, you'd feel a lot better if you could find something funny about your situation. Clowns can help you to find the funniness. Which means that clowns can help you to get better. And they do. I hope that you get to meet one if you go to the hospital!
