Award-winning children’s author, Danielle Leibovici, LMFT, has written and released #1 Amazon best-selling children's book “Waiting for Emma: A Brother’s Story” (For Siblings and Families with Babies in the NICU). This month begins Leibovici's campaign with the Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters in support of their Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the families they serve.
In honor of National Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Awareness Month, 100% of net proceeds from book sales will be donated. Books can be purchased and donated directly through CHKD, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, select retailers and signed copies are available through author's website.
After her own daughter sought treatment in the NICU at CHKD, Leibovici was asked by their medical community to create a children’s book in support of all family members with a preemie or newborn in the NICU. "It gives me great satisfaction that from such a dark time in our family's life, this beautiful book is here to touch and support the very families it was written for. A true full circle moment. Now with this special book and campaign with CHKD, families benefit, and the NICU benefits. It’s a win, win!”
Edward Karotkin, MD, a Professor of Pediatrics and a neonatologist at CHKD, raves; “...An exceptionally written and realistically illustrated children’s book available today for siblings and families with NICU babies. The sensitivity, support, and useful resources for all family members, are invaluable. Bravo! Thank you, Danielle Leibovici.”
Heather Wilson, NICU mother, shares, “I didn’t even realize the impact the NICU experience had taken on each of us. Joey, my son, completely opened up about his feeling after reading this book. I also learned that by not sharing my feelings, I was not leading by a good example. We are grateful for a book like this!”
"Waiting for Emma: A Brother’s Story” received the Seal of Excellence from the Mom’s Choice Awards and has taken the Bronze Medal for Best Children's Book in Non-Fiction, from Reader’s Favorite.
Danielle’s recent campaign was held in July at the Pasadena Public Library benefiting the Institute for Families of Los Angles, CA; a charity supporting babies, children, and families with visual impairments.
