A collection of writings addressed to little brothers and sisters of newborn children who undertake to face three frequent questions: How do you wait for a brother who is born but is not there? What does it mean to have a brother born as a small child who stays in an incubator? And why will it take him so long before he comes to play with them? Through stories and nursery rhymes, this book tells about the steps needed to grow up enough to be able to go home, but also about the anger, boredom of waiting, fear, curiosity and happiness that it feels when a small baby is born.

  • It is from the internal experience of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of the S. Anna hospital in Turin that this book is born, which follows on Fagiolino e la giraffa, aimed at very young readers.
  • The writer is well aware that there are children who are born suddenly. too early, too small, they are very small. And there are some sisters and brothers who are waiting for them and asking themselves many questions: How many days does it take before they come home? Where did my parents (as I used to know them) go? How big is needed to become to leave the hospital? But also: how many emotions can you feel in the meantime?
