Peanut cover photo

Omaha author and illustrator Lindsay Nolan recently sent me her new book, “Peanut: A storybook for mighty preemie babies.” With lovely illustrations, based off actual photos and events of Nolan’s own preemie son, it was a sweet story I couldn’t pass up telling you about.

“Little baby,

I understand

that life never goes

exactly as planned,

and that something so little

can be something so grand.”

– Lindsay Nolan, “Peanut: A storybook for mighty preemie babies”

It’s a short storybook full of faith and a mother’s lover. I think you’ll like it!

Since it’s Nolan’s hope to offer encouragement to parents of other mighty preemies, I’ll be passing the book on to my sister, who’s daughter was born prematurely, too. She weighed in at a whopping 2 pounds, 7 ounces. Peanut indeed.

Just look at me holding the little peanut for the first time.

My niece is turning 2 years old next month – her latest feat is climbing out of her crib.

If you have a preemie, I know you’ll like the book. If know someone who has a preemie, it makes a great gift. Nolan’s book is available at Amazon

And if you’re wondering about the “Peanut” in the book, he looks like a happy (and mighty) boy. Here’s a photo Nolan shared with me:

I am a Services Coordinator for the Early Development Network in Nebraska (La Vista). It would be so great to give some of the families we serve in our program this book. Thank you for featuring this- I was unaware of the book! Awesome!

I am proud to say that I have a little PEANUT. His name is Zaydhen and born at 28weeks. He was born 2lbs 0.6oz on Nov. 25th 2015. We spent 54 long sleepless nights in the nicu watching our peanut grow and other little peanuts come and go but we never lost hope that our day would come soon. Jan. 20th was our day to say goodbye to the nicu.

Two of our friends had preemie twins last year, and I'm happy to say all are doing well.
