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 Robot on My Tummy

Gillian King-Cargile

Getting a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) is a big adjustment, but it is also a big help in learning to monitor blood sugar and live well with diabetes.
Featuring fun rhymes, hand-painted illustrations, and colorful scenarios, The Robot on My Tummy takes T1D children on an imaginative journey through the ways a CGM can change their care routine for the better. Helpful backmatter explains how CGMs can assist kids and caregivers in anticipating blood sugar levels and managing the highs and lows of diabetes.

Whether kids dream of being a popstar, mountain climber, or space wizard, this book will help them develop a positive attitude about their new CGM companion, the robot on their tummy!
