Celebrate "It Was Midnight On The Ocean" and NICU storytelling

This Saturday night, The ParentChild Mother Goose Program® presents Talking You In , a story created and told by Dan Yashinsky with music composed and performed by Brian Katz. This is the story of a family’s journey as they make their way through the neo-natal intensive care unit, hoping that the sound of their voices telling stories, rhymes and songs will connect them with their fragile “starchild” and possibly help with his healing and theirs. It is a performance not to be missed by a very gifted storyteller and musician.

And the night also celebrates the publication of It Was Midnight on the Ocean, The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Book of Rhymes and Stories inspired by Dan Yashinsky’s experience when his child was in the NICU, edited by Celia Lottridge of The Parent‐Child Mother Goose Program, published by The Hospital For Sick Children to be given to parents with babies in the NICU, and funded by the Neonatology Department and the Sasha Bella Fund for Family Centred Care at SickKids Foundation.
