This is a delightful story and a quick read - perfect for an afternoon, airline flight or waiting in the doctor's office. Lots of juicy details and history about the World Fair in Chicago during the depression. More importantly, it covers the medical origins of treating premature babies. Feel free to email with any questions. ~LeAnn

I thought this book started a bit slowly, but well worth the effort to give it time for the story to build. the "hatbox baby" is only a part of the story. It follows various people tied to the Chicago fair and in reading about it, I would like to do my own research.
