Reviews - What do customers think about My Baby Sister Is a Preemie (Helping Kids Heal)?
Truly helpful for young children Aug 5, 2005
We struggled to explain the circumstances around our adoption of a 27 week preemie to our 5 1/2 year old, including the fact that he would be in a newborn ICU for several months before coming home. With fantastic illustrations and clear, easy to understand prose, this book is an incredible support to parents struggling to explain prematurity to young children. The book does not sugar coat, but presents facts and images in clear, simple to understand ways that are reassuring and validating. My son instantly connected with the young protagonist. Although the book has a slight religious overtone, religion is treated very briefly and respectfully and should not turn off families who are either not religious or of another religion from the family in the book. All in all, this book is a wonderful tool for parents struggling to explain a complex and challenging situation to their young children, and I strongly recommend it.
