Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The most widely used resource for helping children manage their diabetes is now totally revised and updated. When kids find out they have diabetes, they often have questions about what it is and how they got it. It’s Time to Learn About Diabetes is an entertaining and easy-to-use guide that and explains diabetes in simple terms, showing school-age kids how to help take care of themselves. With friendly cartoon hosts Cindy and Mike, this workbook alleviates the fear associated with insulin shots and blood tests and helps kids understand what’s happening in their bodies. By emphasizing the positive and providing an outlet for children to express their feelings, it clearly shows kids how to manage their diabetes and feel good about themselves. It’s Time to Learn About Diabetes also includes helpful tips on exercise, healthy eating, caring for diabetes in school, and planning for parties and vacations. • Books to Fund a Cure • A portion of this book’s proceeds will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation International, a not-for profit voluntary health agency, whose primary objective is to support and fund research to find the cause, cure, treatment, and prevention of diabetes and its complications. The JDF gives more money to diabetes research than any other private health agency in the world. JDF Juvenile Diabetes Foundation Library Health/Diabetes/Parenting

I am an R.N. in an acute care hospital and this is the best book I have found for newly diagnosed diabetics. It's simple, but not childish. It gives all the pertinent information for a diabetic to get off to a good start without overloading them with a lot of medical jargon and technical information. It's officially recommended for pre-teens, but I find it beneficial for even adults. When they are ready to learn more, then they can move up to a more advanced book.

I bought this for my 6 year old son who is on the verge of diabetes. I wanted to point out the reality of diabetes without scaring him too much. Let's face it, diabetes is scary. The workbook has a good amount of age appropriate details (for 10+ year olds) and some exercises to reinforce the information. It is a little advanced for my 6 year old, so we used the text and pictures but not the exercises. My explanations tend to be abstract and a little to old for my son. The little pictures of hungry cells crying out for sugar helped me to explain larger concepts in an age appropriate way.
