The most widely used resource for helping children manage their diabetes is now totally revised and updated. When kids find out they have diabetes, they often have questions about what it is and how they got it. It's Time to Learn About Diabetes is an entertaining and easy-to-use guide that and explains diabetes in simple terms, showing school-age kids how to help take care of themselves. With friendly cartoon hosts Cindy and Mike, this workbook alleviates the fear associated with insulin shots and blood tests and helps kids understand what's happening in their bodies. By emphasizing the positive and providing an outlet for children to express their feelings, it clearly shows kids how to manage their diabetes and feel good about themselves. It's Time to Learn About Diabetes also includes helpful tips on exercise, healthy eating, caring for diabetes in school, and planning for parties and vacations. Books to Fund a Cure A portion of this book's proceeds will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation International, a not-for profit voluntary health agency, whose primary objective is to support and fund research to find the cause, cure, treatment, and prevention of diabetes and its complications. The JDF gives more money to diabetes research than any other private health agency in the world. JDF Juvenile Diabetes Foundation Library Health/Diabetes/Parenting
