This book is perfect in every way! My son has been type 1 one for two years now, and off to K5 in less than a month - how scary! This is the perfect book to be read to his classmates so they can learn a bit about diabetes. The language describing his condition is clear and simple, as is telling a bit how he takes care of himself. It's very clear and reassuring to his new friends that he's still like everyone else, even though he does some different things. The book covers insulin pumps, too, which is great.

We will be taking this book to school at the beginning of this school year - as well as many to come!!!

This book is great! We bought it for our newly-diagnosed diabetic son to take to school to share with classmates. This book answers many common questions kids have about diabetes in a fun and informative story!

This was my personal favourite standout book from the 5 or so diabetes related books I have ordered. It is a simply written picture book suitable for all ages of primary school children that demystefies diabetes in a way that is cool and easy to understand. It could be read quite easily by the teacher to the class or by the children. The main character does not wear an insulin pump but he has a friend in the book who does so both insulin pump wearing and injection therapy are well covered in this book. I think what I liked best about this book is the ten top tips for teachers at the back of the book- this is gold and would make a great gift for any teacher for their classroom library.

I purchased this book to share with the first and second grade classroom who will be getting a new student who is diabetic. It was great! Explained what diabetes is, that it is not contagious (kids won't catch it) and what to expect. It talked about the highs and the lows, about not sharing food because he has a special food plan to help control the diabetes, about the testing meter, the shots, and the pump. I loved that it shared suggestions about what behaviors they might see in their new classmate that might indicate that he is having a problem and what to do it they see them. It even had a little quiz at the end.

I highly recommend the book.

I haven't had a chance to use it but just wanted it for my library. As a type 1 diabetic, I wish there had been more things around like this when I was younger.

Our endocrinologist let us borrow this book to read in the hospital. While the hospital staff offered a very thorough technical education to my husband and I, as an elementary teacher, I wanted to make sure my six-year-old had a better understanding (on her level) of what was happening to her. After we read it in the hospital, I ordered it on Amazon, so it was waiting when we got home from the hospital. We really appreciated using this book first as a tool for our daughter's own understanding and then as a resource for her teacher to read to her classmates to read in her first grade class after she returned to school.

This didn't help my 8 yr old granddaughter. Doesn't seem like a child helped write the book nor contributed to the questions being answered.
