Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-5-Natalie, who appears to be 9 or 10, introduces readers to her diabetes kit that she calls Philomena. Then, in a cheerful, conversational tone, she proceeds to explain the disease-its symptoms, testing, treatment, diet-and how she and her family manage her condition at home and at school. Color photographs on every page illustrate all aspects of the text-getting shots, preparing meals, practicing for emergencies, school activities, and playing with her sister. The book concludes with 13 frequently asked questions and answers about diabetes. Carol Antoinette Peacock's Sugar Was My Best Food (Albert Whitman, 1998) discusses the subject from an 11-year-old boy's point of view.

From Booklist

Gr. 2-4. In this upbeat and informative title, young Natalie describes how she manages her type I diabetes. She speaks straightforwardly in first person about the ups and downs of her daily procedures, demonstrating how she tests her sugar levels, explaining about insulin shots, and describing the emergency procedures her family practices. Natalie's family and community are extremely involved in her care. Her mother helps measure food; her classmates cheer when her sugar levels are normal; and her sister recognizes the signs of low and high blood sugar, knowing exactly how to respond. An inspirational tale of a family managing a difficult condition. Large color photos and appended facts and resources supplement the text. Helen Rosenberg
