The author's comments and suggestions about how to get a diabetic child's needs met in school were practical and helpful. How parents can be an advocates for their children and how school personnel can be educated about what having a child with diabetes in the classroom means were explained thoughtfully and clearly. This book would be an excellent resource for any parent with a school-age child with a serious or chronic illness. Although book reads like you are having a conversation over a cup of coffee, it contains a wealth of information and support.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book is extremely well written. It gives a mother's point of view from the time that her child is diagnosed with diabetes through the first year of managing the disease. While reading this book I felt that the author was speaking to me in conversation. I feel this book would give perspective to any parent who is facing the same challenges with their child.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Having a diabetic child changes your everyday life in so many ways. This book addresses many of those aspects that are never covered in books by medical professionals, because their books are about the disease, and this book is about being a parent.Was this review helpful?
