A Very Special Preemie Book

Written by Clorinda Walters

Illustrated by AnneMarie Walters



"When babies are born prematurely it can be a scary experience for older siblings. Experience the "preemie" world as your baby host helps your child to better understand why their brother or sister is in the hospital after a premature birth." - from back cover

Clorinda & AnneMarie Walters have 18 years combined experience as registered nurses in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at St. Joseph''s Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona. Both have observed the hardships families go through when their child is born prematurely. Despite years of experience, nothing could prepare them for when their own son was born nine weeks early. Now with work and personal experience, Clorinda and AnneMarie decided to write a book about "preemies" for younger children in the hopes that it would lessen their anxiety.
