Lg Cwd


Books about diabetes matter to the CWD community. Books provide the information and the tool sets we need to make pump adjustments, healthy recipes, and decisions about our medical care. Books show us people with diabetes as the heroes, the scientists, the teachers, the athletes, the change-makers, and these narratives help shape the way we view this health condition.

Here at CWD, we've taken years to cultivate and curate a very special library, filled with stories and science that lift us up and keep us informed. These books are the ones we keep on our staff bookshelves and recommend to our friends. These are the stories we trust to keep us moving forward. Check out our CWD library, peruse the bookshelves, and please reach out if you have a dog-eared diabetes favorite that you'd like us to include.

The Dinosaur Tamer (and Other Stories for Children with Diabetes)

Marcia Levine Mazur, Peter Banks, and Andrew Keegan

The Dinosaur Tamer is just one of the 25 fictional stories that will entertain, enlighten, and ease your child’s frustrations about having diabetes. Each tale warmly evaporates the fear of insulin shots, blood tests, being “different,” and all the other not-so-fun parts of having diabetes.

Seeing life with diabetes woven into a series of fictional short stories is a welcomed respite from some of the non-fiction, data-heavy books about diabetes. The stories in The Dinosaur Tamer takes a light-hearted approach to some challenging conversations about diabetes, and as an adult with diabetes, I enjoyed and appreciated the playful approach.
