Overview

Comic book-style illustrations, kid-friendly diagrams, and a glossary connect children and parents to the world of diabetes. Kelvin is a boy who loves all things Superhero and spends his playtime fighting off villains and other imaginary threats and always saving the day, of course. One day his fantasy world is interrupted by the reality of getting diabetes...the incessant finger pricks, shots, and the constant doctor's appointments. When a specialist doctor uncovers that Kelvin has superpowers, he takes a superhero oath as 'Super K' and becomes a superhero that uses his superpowers to help kids with diabetes. With comic book style illustrations by Micah Chambers-Goldberg, this book beautifully connects children and parents to the world of diabetes. It also includes a kid friendly diagram that explains Type I diabetes and a glossary that discusses both Type I and Type II diabetes. EVEN SUPERHEROES GET DIABETES is a powerful educational tool for doctors, parents, kids, and librarians, empowering kids to find their own superpowers in the face of adversity.
