When you have a baby born preterm or with medical complications it is a challenge to find children’s books written for your baby. You’re often left feeling quite isolated because your child’s birth story isn’t what is depicted in most books about babies. Jennifer’s latest book is a story told with love, hope and a dash of humor that gives us NICU parents a wonderful addition to our baby’s book collection. I am so grateful to Jennifer for giving us this book to share with our kids.
I Was Small, But Now I’m Tall, is the second children’s book written by Jennifer Degl, who once again succeeds at bringing comforting words and insurmountable hope to families who experience the trauma of delivering a fragile and premature baby. I was Small, But Now I’m Tall will be a treasured story for hundreds of parents and children for years to come, and undoubtedly will be on my recommended reading list for the NICU families I care for.
