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
