We just heard from the national director of the March of Dimes NICU Family Support Program. In an e-mail she sent out to all the NICU directors, she said:
I have read the new book for siblings with a premature baby in the NICU Evan Early and I found it sensitive, real and valuable, especially in that the story does not end with an outcome, but with Evan still in the NICU. I would encourage you to order more of these books…”
Woodbine House has already sent all the NICU centers around the country a copy of EVAN EARLY. Now March of Dimes is also going to feature it on their website and their catalog. EVAN EARLY was never meant for general appeal or big reviews, so the fact that its special audience–and an organization that I respect so much–finds it worthwhile is very exciting.
