Abstract
When Natalie's little brother Evan Earl is born prematurely, he's earns the nickname Evan Early. No one can say for sure when Evan will come home from the hospital. To help her with this uncertainty, Natalie's father gives her a calendar to keep track of the days - each day that Natalie colors in is one day closer to the day Evan can come home. Natalie visits Evan in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and talks to the nurses about what they do, and her Mom explains how the tubes and machines are helping Evan to breathe and eat. As the days go by and become 'rainbow weeks' on Natalie's coloring calendar, she gets lonely and a little scared; her parents spend most of their time with Evan in the NICU. She finally gets upset by their neglect. Her Mom reassures her that they haven't forgotten about her. Natalie learns that, although her brother might always need special help and lots of attention, she can be a big help and teach him family traditions.
