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.
