Melania Trump's visits with hospitalized children are quickly becoming a tradition during her trips abroad with President Trump.
On Thursday, Trump visited Necker Hospital while in Paris.
The first lady spoke briefly in French with six children, the Associated Press reported. She introduced herself and asked how they were doing before relying on a translator.
Trump told a 14-year-old girl in a wheelchair that she looked "very good, very strong."
"Soon you'll be walking and running," Trump said after the girl told her she'd be leaving the hospital next week for rehabilitation.
The director of Paris' public hospital system, Martin Hirsch, gifted a copy of The Little Prince to Trump.
"I will keep it, practice my French," Trump said while thanking Hirsch.
After her visit, Trump tweeted that she had "continued prayers for good health for all."
