Touched by Diabetes: A Guide for Families and Children is written
for adults to read to children and teens. The text encourages
dialogue about the condition through the use of colorful
illustrations presenting daily family life with Diabetes patients
in the home and outdoors.
Symptoms are discussed in simple language, and adults are provided
with questions to ask children to encourage conversation about the
condition. Medical facts are supplied at the end of each page to
help readers answer questions with greater ease, and specific terms
are explained in the margins.
