Known in the Type 1 community as the Type 1 bible, the updated 6th Edition is one of the best books you can have to reference for Type 1.

Bonnie Bionic Takes an Insulin Pump to School 

Have you ever underestimated a child's ability to understand a concept that you were certain was far beyond their ken? Or perhaps given them less credit for having compassion for the plight of others? Well, I have! And I am delighted to say that I have learned from my experiences with the children who have taught me as much as I taught them. Bonnie Bionic is a 1500-word picture book story about an elementary school aged girl who develops juvenile diabetes and how well she copes with the diagnosis. She is undaunted by modern technology which is instrumental in treating her new disorder. As a child of the "computer era," Bonnie takes to the concept of using a mini computer as an integral part of her treatment like a duck takes to water. The story takes the child's view of what is important in her world and may be surprising to adults who would worry about other things not nearly as important to the child involved.
