In Our New Baby Is In the NICU by Lindsey Coker Luckey, we are introduced to a little boy who wanted a baby sister. He found out he was going to be a big brother on his birthday and couldn’t contain his excitement. Before he knew it, the baby had arrived, but not at the right time. His little sister was born early and she was very small. Her lungs weren’t developed so she had to be placed in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit where she was put in an incubator. She had oxygen and heart monitors on her, which was strange to see, but the doctor explained that this was necessary to help with her breathing and to make sure that her heart was all right. The little boy felt sorry for his sister because all the tubes and needles scared him. Eventually, his sister leaves the NICU and can go home.
I think that Lindsey Coker Luckey has once again done an amazing job dealing with such a delicate subject in a way that makes a kid understand. Many children have to spend time in the NICU for various reasons. Some eventually go home like the little boy's sister, but then you have those who don’t. I liked the main character because he has been written so authentically and it feels as if we are seeing this through his eyes. The illustrations are also beautifully done and match the storyline. Luckey has done admirably with Our New Baby is in the NICU by bringing reality and painful subjects to small readers to help them understand. I can’t wait to read even more of her works.
