Overview

For siblings, the happy anticipation of the birth of a new brother or sister can turn to worry and confusion when the baby is born prematurely. This is the set-up for the new children's book, EVAN EARLY. Natalie, the book's narrator, has just become a big sister, and the story begins with her proudly announcing, "I have a new brother. His name is Evan Earl. But he doesn't live with us, not yet." She cleverly nicknames him Evan Early because he arrived too soon.

Through Natalie's experiences, this comforting story helps young children understand and cope with the uncertainties surrounding the birth of a premature sibling. One of the first questions for many children is, "How long before the baby comes home?" To help ease Natalie's mind, her father gives her a calendar to color in the days as they wait.

Like most premature babies, Evan's first home is the hospital NICU, a busy, sometimes scary place where Natalie has to learn the proper procedures for visiting her brother--washing hands with soap and water, wearing a gown to cover her clothes--and wonders what all the machines and wires do.

Natalie also experiences many emotional ups and downs along the way. She becomes hurt and angry because her parents seem preoccupied with Evan and spend so much time at the hospital. But when her mom tells her that Evan will need lots of extra help to grow and get strong, her anger subsides, and she begins to feel protective of her baby brother again.

EVAN EARLY, with its expressive illustrations and realistic storyline, offers young readers a comparison to their own family's experience. A set of questions and answers on prematurity at the endof the book lends additional support. This story is sure to be popular with siblings and their parents, and recommended by neonatal nurses and pediatricians, and social workers.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kimberly O'Meara
Evan was born early. That much his big sister knows for sure. When does he come home, she wonders where her Mom is, why she is so sad, and why Evan is hooked up to so many tubes. These are the questions that are ever-present in Natalie's mind. Her Dad helps her count down the days and assuages her fears with a calendar that Natalie can decorate. As Evan and his parents face his struggle between life and death, Natalie is left to deal with her emotions largely on her own at Grandma's house. Without being too daunting, the illustrations and text represent many of the real and scary challenges that exist for premature babies. Although intimidating at times, the story concludes with Natalie's Mom guiding her daughter to recognize that even though Evan is special and has many needs, they do not love Natalie any less. The illustrations depict real life family dynamics in, at times, unsettling clarity. Although intended for children ranging in age from three to seven, I feel the text and concepts are more mature and would be better suited for the latter end of the range.

    A charming story

    Evan Early is written by Rebecca Hogue Wojahn and features illustrations from Ned Gannon. An outstanding picturebook for children ages 4 to 8, Even Early is the story of a little girl, Natalie, and the pre-mature birth of her little brother Evan. A charming story of Natalie's patience, Evan Early offers children a remarkable insight and understanding of what being an older sibling really means. A prized addition to any school or community library picturebook collection, Evan Early is especially recommended to the attention of parents anticipating the birth of a little sibling for their older child who will no longer be an only child when their little sibling arrive.
