We are fans of the Lilly Diabetes books featuring Coco the Monkey. Even our child without diabetes likes them and has learned quite a bit from the Q&A at the end of each book.
I know not everyone has been able to get their hands on the Disney Coco books or the ESPN themed books. In theory all pediatric endo practices should be able to get them from their Lilly rep.
If you are looking for these books, Lilly and Disney’s t1everydaymagic website now has six books available for viewing online. What’s neat is that the website will read the stories to your child.
Many classrooms now have smartboards or other ways of showing web content to the class. This might be a fun way to introduce diabetes to younger classes.
