Leighann Calentine's first book, 'Kids First, Diabetes Second' goes on sale this week. You probably know Leighann from her wonderful diabetes CareGiver blog, 'The D-Mom Blog' but if you don't you should take a few moments to get acquainted with her work.
I've read 'Kids First...' and recommend it to families living with type I. While you're reading keep an eye out for sidebars throughout the book written by DOC members whose names I'm betting that you'll recognize. In fact on page 152 there is a particularly good piece about building a working relationship with your child's school. Bet you can't guess which DOCer wrote that one?
Leighann's book is available in paperback and on your favortie eBook reader.
disclaimer: I was provided a copy of 'Kids First...' at no cost by Spry Publishing and wrote a brief review that I allowed them to use. Though Spry will be publishing my forthcoming book in 2013, my opinions about 'Kids' are my own and motivated soley by the pleasure that I got from reading it. I was not compensated for my contribution to the title nor do I have a financial or other stake in it's success.
