Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
With one million people afflicted with diabetes in the United States, 125,000 of them are children. This book offers insight to children with the disease as well as to their families and friends. This book provides a first-person narrative of Rose and of her brother James, each character detailing how their family deals with Rose's diabetes. Although diabetes is a chronic ailment, it is also a manageable one. This book goes to great lengths to explain what the disease is and how it can be controlled. Thoughtful, clear, and educational, this story takes the scariness out of the term diabetes and shows how children with the disease are able to live normal lives. Supported by the American Diabetes Association and other diabetes specialists and groups, it is certainly a helpful tool for any household or classroom. 1997, Health Press, Ages 7 up, $8.95.
