"Rosie the Type 1 Diabetes Warrior Goes to Diabetes Summer Camp" is the second story in the "Rosie Becomes a Warrior" children's book series. The events in this story happen after the first book. This children's book series is designed to empower children with type 1 diabetes to live their happiest lives.

In the second book in this series, you will learn about:
  • How Rosie and her family are coping with her recent type 1 diabetes diagnosis.
  • The fears Rosie and her family have about her attending diabetes summer camp away from home.
  • The benefits and takeaways of going to diabetes summer camp as a child with type 1 diabetes.
Join Rosie and her new friends, Maya and Timmy, at Camp Wagagaga this summer where they learn how to become more independent and confident diabetes managers, get practice with carb-counting, and most importantly-remember to be kids

This book is a resource for parents, children with type 1 diabetes, teachers and classrooms everywhere, and anyone who wants to learn more about each other's unique experiences. It is my belief that when we learn about conditions we have no connection to, it helps to create a more empathetic, understanding, and compassionate world.

This book includes a lighthearted, fun song you can learn with or teach your kids, bright and colorful drawings, an activity section in the back of the book with prompts that your child can answer to share how they feel about diabetes and what they learned from the book, and key diabetes terminology definitions for parents.
