A Type 1 Diabetes Book Launch!


It’s T1D book launch time! I am pleased to announce that I have launched my book in English and Spanish, “A Thriving Diabetic” and “Una diabética que ha salido adelante!

These books mean a lot to me! Why? I am finally sharing the story of my own diagnosis, and how I have learned to accept and understand diabetes. As a teacher, I believe that representation and interactive texts are important for our children. I tried to include both in my story to fully engage children. I truly hope these books help children feel like they are able to see themselves in the story!


I am currently looking for T1Ds or families affected by T1D who will read and leave an honest review of the story. If you are interested, please reach out to me on here or on Instagram and I will get the book right over to you. The books can also be found here on Amazon (English Version) or here (Spanish Version). All links to diabetes resources and journals I have created can be viewed on my Linktree!

Story description in English and Spanish:
