This is a sweet, gentle story that explains indirectly what happens when a baby is born prematurely. Using the dog characters creates more of a story atmosphere instead of an explanation. The siblings of a premature baby would be able to read this without distress and come away with a better understanding of the situation.
Lenart's illustrations are absolutely adorable. She uses soft sculpture with wool and other materials to create her world. The dogs seem cuddly and lovable. Children who like stuffies will absolutely love these pictures.
Although this book would be of great benefit to children encountering the birth of a premature child, the story is broad enough to interest any child between the ages of two and seven.
I was given an ebook copy for review.
Premature births are all too common and, when they occur, can be confusing for a young child. Prince Preemie, with its fairy tale atmosphere and the adorable, dreamy drawings of dogs created from wool by illustrator Claudia Marie Lenart, is a wonderful story that offers an excellent way to start conversations on the subject. This feel good book will resonate with all who have experienced or are currently dealing with a premature birth in some capacity, whether parents, siblings, other relatives and friends, or even preemie children themselves who may later have questions about their early birth, and leave them feeling hopeful.
Author Jewel Kats, who suffered injuries to her legs in a car accident at nine years of age resulting in limited use and functionality, wrote a number of children’s books for Loving Healing Press, around a dozen in all, many of which I have reviewed in times past. These included Reena’s Bollywood Dream: A Story About Sexual Abuse (2010), Cinderella’s Magical Wheelchair: An Empowering Fairy Tale (2011), What Do You Use to Help Your Body?: Maggie Explores the World of Disabilities (2011), Teddy Bear Princess: A Story About Sharing and Caring (2012), DitzAbled Princess: A Comical Diary Inspired by Real Life (2013), The Princess and the Ruby: An Autism Fairy Tale (2013), Snow White’s Seven Patches: A Vitiligo Fairy Tale (2013), and The Princess Panda Tea Party: A Cerebral Palsy Fairy Tale (2014). All of these also deal in some way or another with various kinds of disabilities and other special needs. In addition, she did two other books with Claudia Marie Lenart, Jenny and Her Dog Both Fight Cancer: A Tale of Chemotherapy and Caring, and Hansel and Gretel: A Fairy Tale with a Down Syndrome Twist. Jewel, whose real name was Michelle Meera Katyal, passed away in 2016 as the result of complications of surgery.
Beautifully illustrated, this book incorporates a fictitious King and Queen in a fictitious realm. A short book that every child will love to have read to them, maybe repeatedly! I really liked this book for it's message and creativity. A perfect gift!

This is an easy story to read with a child (or on your own like me ;-) ) and I felt that it encouraged discussion between the older and younger reader as they went through it together. A lovely way for a young child to be able to understand what is either happening to them in their own family or perhaps a family they know.
I just smiled throughout this book, it was so cute with touching illustrations reminding me of soft cotton wool. Definitely a book to be cherished and passed around the family.
