"I thought it was fantastic... the reason it's important is that we forget to talk to our patients about our families, and we especially forget to talk to them about their children. How do you talk to them about it? Are they scared that you're going to go low but they don't know how to tell you? So often when we talk to these children as adults and they say, 'you know i spent my teen years so scared something would happen to my mom.' This book is a fantastic way to get that out there, open that dialogue, and give the child a chance to talk about it and express their concerns and give the child a chance to understand type 1 diabetes." -Dr. Kathleen Wyne, Endocrinologist with Ohio State University

Where does insulin go? In the butter compartment of the fridge, of course. Mommy Beeps is a story for children who have a parent, sibling, teacher, or other loved one who has diabetes. Explore the day in the life of a type 1 diabetic and her child as they go on adventures - dealing with high and low sugars, waiting on hold for lab results, and visiting the endocrinologist.
