Parents strengthen the resolve of their diabetic children. Pediatric depart­ments entertain anxious patients. This 36-page softcover storybook is written primarily for kids, but any adult involved in the world of diabetes will relate. In addition to the entertain­ing bedtime story, there is an illus­trated page that describes how diabetes works in child-appropriate language. Super-K’s Diabetes Decoder covers symptoms, glucose test kit, insulin pump and more.

Beautifully illus­trated by Micah Chambers-Goldberg, this fictional story by Sue Ganz-Schmitt follows the young life of Kelvin. He loved superheroes ever since he was little. Then one day (while still little), he is diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Children will draw strength from the Super-K transformation coping mechanisms. ©2007
