The Story of Katie Rose
A Preemie's Journey
Harold Davis, Phyllis Davis
"The Story of Katie Rose" is about a premature baby who was born very early. This book follows her journey as she grows in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and is finally able to go home.
Often siblings of a preemie do not understand why their new baby brother or sister has not come home. "The Story of Katie Rose" is written for children and is perfect for reading aloud to help explain what is happening. Actual photos of Katie Rose in the NICU accompany the text and will help familiarize children with what they may see in the hospital.
The hospital machines, such as respirators, monitors, and incubators, can sometimes seem scary. These essential machines are explained in simple, easy-to-understand language that describes how they help Katie Rose.
"The Story of Katie Rose" is not just for siblings of preemies. Parents and grandparents, and anyone who is close to a preemie in the hospital, will find the simple, clear information about medical technology related to prematurity helpful and enlightening.
Follow the inspirational story of Katie Rose's journey as she grows from a tiny, fragile baby who weighs less than six sticks of butter into a baby who is ready to come home.
