More suited to older children
on March 9, 2012
I bought this for my nephew who is 2yrs 5mths. His sisters were born at 28 weeks and are expected to be in hospital until their due date - so about 12 weeks. Although he has been introduced to babies & knew that there were babies in mummy's tummy - I thought it would be hard for him to understand why his sisters are so different from other babies - staying in hospital, having lots of tubes attached etc. I hoped this would be a nice book to be read to him and discussed with him, so he can understand what is happening.
I haven't seen the book, as it was sent directly to my nephew (I live too far away), but his parents say that it is "more suited to older children". I don't really know - but suspect that it might be a bit confronting for a young child - with complex explanations & terminology.
Hopefully the book will be more useful when my nephew & nieces are older.
