The author's exciting eventful experience with the birth of her grandchild has been put to story. She vividly recalls a real dream she had following the night after her granddaughter's birth,
who was a high risk baby needing help for survival from the expert staff at a Medical Center many miles away from her local community hospital.
Told through Baby Ella's words, the story unfolds at her start of life as she is greeted by Magi-cal Elephant Doctors. This is followed with a rollicking ambulance ride over the mountains, and then continues in a dreamy fantasy of fun and frolic, all the while Ella is treated at the Special Care Nursery.
Ella awakens from her dreamy sleep after playing with special friends. She is embraced by her mother for the first time and feels the power of love, family, friendship, and healing.
This is a wonderful book to share with parents or siblings of a high risk baby, or to teach children and adults about using dreams and imagery, especially during stressful times. The power of love and hope in healing is beautifully illustrated with a heartwarming ending.
This book is delightful for all ages.
