Mommy What is Diabetes? Book Reviews

“Our book is meant to help children and their families adjust to thier new life with juvenile diabetes,” Irene says.” but It’s great for anyone! as it trys to provide the entire family support and to let them know that they are far from alone in their situation and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel–even though that tunnel feels like a very long one at times. This is not about us, this is about raising awareness and helping families by letting people know that it won’t be perfect, but it will be okay.” Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments to add here…we appreciate your support!

He was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes a month ago and this book was written by a 4 year old and her mother that was just diagnosed with the same disease. He was able to relate to everything that the little girl had gone through. Awful disease, excellent book.”

“Thank you for everything, we needed this” ” This book was written to help people and give guidance. As I read the book, I felt like I was in the story” everything was so similar to us… 

“Thank you for the inspiring words, you could be a professional motivational speaker”

“It’s a great book for children diagnosed with any Diabetes. The book was not a short story, it had depth and meaning, cant wait to see it on the shelf in stores” 

” This book fill’s the gap between the hospital and going home. It informs all involved even when they cant talk, friends and family can read this story to see what it’s like”

“After reading the book, I got a better understanding of all thats involved with a child with type 1 diabetes.  I am a first grade teacher and I will be getting a child in September with type 1 diabetes.  I was very worried and scared that I wouldn’t know what to expect, but after reading this book I feel more confident and much more at ease.  The book is very flowing and easy to read.  I love that the words came from a child and mother’s experience of all the hurdles they went through–from being first diagnosed to just everyday living. The book is child friendly with words and illustrations from a child’s point of view as well as a parent section from a mother’s point of view.   I am very excited to be able to have a book that I can read to my students and keep in the classroom library so that the students  can have a better understanding of what their classmate goes through everyday. It truly is a wonderful book– A MUST HAVE!!”
