Simply Outdated  Dec 27, 2007
I'd like to give this book zero stars - but this site made me choose 1. This book is simply outdated. It falsely clames that the child with diabetes can not have birthday cake and must eat an apple while their peers are enjoying cake! Hogwash!! In this age of home glucose meters, better faster insulin, and insulin pumps it is simply not true. All this book does is continue the false beliefs that are out there that make kids with diabetes feel bad about their condition and make them feel different than their peers.

I took a shapie to my copy and updated the offending pages and altered the text to assert that like any child, a child with diabetes should eat healty - but they can also have treats just like their friends.

But still this book is at the back of our bookshelf and is very rarely read.
Even Little Kids Get Diabetes  Aug 20, 2006
This is a very nice book for smaller children. I enjoyed reading this to my 2 year old. There are a few things that have changed since it was published in 1991. Children can now have some candy, ice cream and cake on special occasions and if it's sugar free or low on carbs. But overall this book was a nice way to introduce my child to the understanding that he is not alone and that there are other children who get diabetes.
DFM review  Mar 14, 2006
We've purchased this book as part of an information package that we give to children who are newly diagnosed. Some of the issues are clearly outdated (for example, the child with DM having to eat the cake without icing whereas now we know that, using carbohydrate counting, this is not necessarily the case). There are positive aspects to the book-reinforcement that there are "special things" that you have to do to stay healthy-blood glucose checks, insulin injections etc... but above all, "you're (still)a regular kid." The book also touches on parental grief/anger at the disease, sibling jealousy, a child's perspective that diabetes means you'll "die" because of the first syllable of the word, "diabetes." In the eyes of our office staff, the positive aspects of this book outweigh the negative or "outdated" material.Maybe a revised edition or sequel could have info on the insulin pump!
Very helpful  Jan 2, 2006
My daughter now age 3, absolutely loves this book. She treasures it more than any others. It's true that it does have some outdated material such as not being able to eat certain things, but for her that worked out fine for me anyway because of her multiple food allergies so shes' still limited on what she can have even if it's not because of her diabetes.
Outdated Information  Oct 11, 2005
Please do not buy this book if you have a child just recently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. It is very negative and does not accurately represent what children can actually have or not have in terms of food, etc. With the advances in diabetes care children are able to participate in a variety of activites and eat almost any type of food - as long as they are dosed for it. The part about the child not able to eat cake at a birthday party is absurd. Skip this one - there are far better resources available.
