Format: Paperback
This book is aimed at ages 8-13 or so. We read this book to our six-year-old son. If not for that, I don't know if I would have ever read it.
All the main characters in the stories have type 1 diabetes. The characters encounter different situations where they have to learn to control their diabetes or ASK FOR HELP.
I recommend that parents read this book. What struck me the most, was how many stories are about kids that "can" do their own care but still want/need their parent's help. Many of the kids in the stories stopped taking care of themselves until the climax of the plot when they finally admitted to their parents they needed help.
If you order this book for your child, read it. At the least, discuss the stories with him or her. We discussed each story with our son and I was amazed at how much he related to the kids in the stories already.
The stories were written before lantus and the insulin pump so my son did have trouble understanding why the kid wasn't allowed a cupcake or such. He doesn't remember being on NPH and regular. Diabetes care has come far! It would be useful if the author would update the book to include the new treatments.
I am giving it four stars, not five because the stories were not the best I've ever read. But this is a valuable book.

I have read this book myslef and a few stories from this book to my 5 year old child with T1. This book is geared towards upper elementary aged children. Some of the references to diabetes care are out dated. The principles and coping strategies introduced in the stories are great and stimulate thought and discussion My child requests this book at story time and really enjoys it..

My 7 year old son loves to listen to these stories and smiles every time the word diabetes is mentioned.
