[RECOMMENDED!] My Sister Has Diabetes and How That Makes Me Feel by Grace Rooney, Illustrated by Michele Pensa. CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2015. ISBN 9781515344520. $7.99.

Book Cover  

In the 26 years that our family has been involved in the type 1 diabetes community, I have never encountered a resource for siblings with the depth of insight I found in My Sister Has Diabetes and How That Makes Me Feel. With just 32 pages -- 16 illustrations and 16 pages of powerful words -- Grace Rooney shares the incredible range of feelings all siblings experience in a way that is both empowering and liberating. Parents should add this book to their diabetes library. Health care professionals should not only read this book, they should give a copy to every family they serve to help validate the complex emotions siblings experience and help them realize that, like their brothers and sisters with type 1 diabetes, they are not alone. Highly recommended.
