  • A reassuring book for a potentially frightening discovery.…Language is simple, age appropriate, and effectively gets the point across. The ink-and-watercolor drawings are lively and often upbeat, with small touches that reflect reality…The book fills a definite void, as other titles on the subject are geared for much older readers.

    - School Library Journal

  • While she alludes to the emotional difficulties faced by all family members and concedes there is no cure as yet, she emphasizes that diabetics are regular kids who can lead normal lives…The book will be helpful to anyone who needs to explain this ailment to young children; a note for parents is appended.

    - Booklist

  • A sensible, realistic account, cheered on its way by Westcott’s lively illustrations and concluded with a helpful note for parents.
