The two talked with children at Seacrest Studios, took some pictures and signed some autographs.

"The trade isn't even official yet and Russell Wilson is already visiting kids at Children's Hospital," tweeted CBS4's Justin Adams. "Talk about making a great first impression to the Colorado community."

The Wilsons also read their own book entitled "Why Not You?" which calls on readers to be brave and see the value in themselves. The book title is also the name of their nonprofit to educate children and advocate for their health and daily lives.
