This book empowers kids to find their own superpowers in the face of illness or adversity.


"What a "super" find! Even Superheroes Get Diabetes is the coolest diabetes-related book for children. Not corny. Not striving (in an obvious way) to be educational. Just a fun read that's witty and brought to life with the most beautiful comic book-style color illustrations. Truly, this is a book that any child, not just kids with diabetes, would enjoy."
