An excellent book, Julia's Journey with Diabetes explains the disease of Diabetes to children. The author uses rhythm in a "Doctor Seus-esque" manner through out the story. The art work is excellent in a folk-style manner. I recommend this book for explaining this disease to young children. The book simplifies and illustrates the symptoms, causes, complications and responses to this disease. An excellent value and it should be made available in Doctor's offices and school systems.
This book was a great read for my son. The kid-friendly language helped make the complicated content of Type I Diabetes comprehensible for him. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a realistic and meaningful way of explaining the disease to children.
This book is honest and realistic about the struggles of living with diabetes, but at the same time it maintains a positive and hopeful tone. It has some pretty high-level vocabulary (such as "glucose" and "autoimmune disorder") but these are terms that a child living with diabetes will need to become familiar with. The illustrations are bright and colorful and the rhyming text is fun to read. Highly recommended!
