"Always following the initial question of "Do you know someone who. . ." are explanations of the topic with full-color photographs and large caption boxes that are easy to follow. Unique to this series is a section that suggests how one can help, or how one can be a good friend to those with these conditions. Health and science teachers will appreciate the quiz included, which can be used to introduce a unit of study. Bright bold colors, easy-to-read fonts, and creative spacing make this an attractive series which provides a much needed reference for young students. Bibliography. Glossary. Websites.

"You might have a friend with diabetes mellitus, or just called ‘diabetes.’ Diabetes is a medical condition. This means that a doctor must tell your friend things to do to stay healthy. This book caught my eye because my father had diabetes in a time when it was more difficult to control. I grew up seeing him take insulin injections daily and observed the results of what the disease can do if it isn’t controlled. It’s in a series that explains health problems to children. The other book in the series that I read is I Know Someone with Cancer. This book introduces children to the medical condition diabetes, describes how it affects people, and discusses what they can do to be a friend to someone with the medical condition. It explains insulin and how it changes the sugars in food to energy in their bodies, continuing to tell how diabetics don’t have the insulin necessary to do this. The book tells what isn’t known about diabetes, and explains the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. In a matter of fact narration, information about controlling diabetes is well explained. Photos clearly show the effects of going low," or having too little blood sugar for energy. It continues on to explain why they need something sweet when sugar is ordinarily a thing to avoid. The book ends with tips about what friends can do when a diabetic is your friend. The final spread features famous people with diabetes. The book has a facts and fiction page, glossary, find out more book list, websites, and an index. Straightforward and simple, it shows diabetics living a normal life among friends. That’s what is important.
