Why This Giveaway ROCKS:  
These books are incredible learning tools for ANYONE living with diabetes.... And invaluable teaching tools for anyone wanting to learn about diabetes - whether they're a friend; child, cousin, niece, nephew or classmate of someone living with diabetes. 
And did I mention that they're well written? 
And currently these books are only available through pediatric endocrinologist offices reaching out to their Lilly reps.
So many people (both parents of cwds & adults with diabetes) contacted me when I wrote about them  asking how they could get copies. 
Well, here's your chance! 
GOOD LUCK! 
Me & Coco @ CWD in July

I would love to have these books! I've wanted to read the Coco books since they came out (and next endo visit I'm asking about them).

Sarah said...

I'd love to win the cookbook because I've been wanting to add this book to my collection for a while. As for the other ones, I'm also starting a collection of kids' books for when I have one of my own!

Stephanie Storm said...

I would love these books because I have a four, almost 5 year old, who is starting to ask questions about Mommy's "Medicine" and having characters she knows and identifies with would help a LOT!

Charity Brenke said...

Love the CoCo books! I'm so glad that Disney & Lilly have partnered together for this book series.

Julie said...

These are great books. My 11yo daughter has been diagnosed for a bit over a year and I have never seen them. I would love for her to read a chapter book with T1 involved. And the cookbook would be a great way to have her try some new foods.

Jennifer said...

I would love to have these books for my 3 yr old T1 and his siblings to learn more about it as well. Also the cookbook would be awesome to get! Thanks for doing this for our families! :)

I would love to have these books for my 6 year old daughter that has type 1 diabetes! I've never seen the cookbook before and it looks great. I've also never seen the Coco goes back to school...would LOVE to read that to her.

I would love to win these books! My son is 13 and was diagnosed T1 2 years ago.

Debra Schindler said...

My T1 would love these...on top of T1 we battling RA and RSD been a rough year...

Thanks

Kelly Dixon said...

I would love to win these books for a few reasons. The first is we can't get them in Canada :( The second is because my son would love them. He has started to help me cook and bake and has done a few baking by himself. Also he enjoys reading.

I would like to win these books so my son can see that he is not alone. He was dx 3 months ago and feels like no one else has to go through what he goes through.

@jrh18966 here! would love the espn books. thanks again

Jen Tokaryk said...

Being from Canada, we can't get the Coco books here. My daughter would LOVE to read them, and then we can pass them on to the younger T1's we know locally! And a Disney cookbook, who wouldn't LOVE a Disney cookbook :)

PancreasticMom said...

HOW GREAT!!! I would love to win these books for my 7-year-old daughter who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes almost a year ago. She loves to read picture books still though she reads chapter books as well. These would be perfect! Thanks for such a neat giveaway!

Alecia said...

The younger sister of one of my high school classmates contacted me last month. Her youngest daughter (2 yrs) old was just diagnosed T1D. Coincidentally, the Mom was just inducted into my high school's athletic hall of fame, so all the books would be a perfect gift for her family! Great giveaway (plus I like that CoCo's rocking the oversized hair bow).

I have two boys with T1 and I know they would love these books but they are a little older. I would actually like to see these books go to a friend who has a little girl with T1. My friend is a single mother and her daughter's T1 is very brittle. With a sensitivity factor of 1/500 the tiniest amount of sugar or insulin sends her into a spiral.

She loves Disney and I can just imagine the look on her face if she was blessed with this gift.

Tracy said...

I would love to have the book set. I have a recently diagnosed Type 1 daugheter who is 11

Denise aka Mom of Bean said...

We were lucky enough to get the COco books at FFL this summer, however, I'd love to be able to pass along their wonderfulness to a family locally who doesn't have them! :)

Emily said...

I would love to have all of the disney books... its nice to have books that have a story line vs being strictly information

Nikki Merlino said...

My daughter and I would love these books!! They would be great for show and tell and play dates. She loves Disney and at 5 years old, she loves to spread the word and knowledge about Diabetes!!

Thanks for the chance to win.

My daughter is 6. She was diagnosed earlier this year. I'm from Canada and have no access to these, I've even tried Lily Canada but they don't have them. Would be awesome to win!!!

Penny said...

Fabulous! What a find and great giveaway! I would like to tell Disney that I will happily review a Disney Cruise or trip to DisneyWorld. Hey folks, call me!

BusyMomOfMany said...

My son is 14, loves sports & I am having a time finding fiction books with accurate facts about T1D for his English class. These sound perfect! I would love to win them for him but I'd be just as happy to be able to buy them...if only they were available. 14 is a tough time to be different than all your friends. Trying to show him he is not alone.

suzy zavala said...

These are awesome & would be great for my 14 yr old T1 nephew who loves sports, both participating and following. Thank you for this opportunity!!

Lizzie said...

I would love to win the set - especially the cookbook!

Randy said...

One month ago today (Nov. 15) at age 31 I was diagnosed Type 1. It's been a crazy month! Would love to get these books so that I, my wife and two kiddos can learn more about our new life.

Dana Mills said...

love love your blog and the books, wish they had books like this 30years ago, could have made childhood, tween and teen year easier!

thanks,
Dana

I would love to win for a couple of reasons...we love anything Disney..and, as a mentor for newly diagnosed T1s, these books would be great to take along as I meet w/families for follow up visits, and share the content...as well as the excitement that comes with all things Disney. :)

Kandice said...

Joyful Monkey would love these! We just fought against a health curriculum at her school that said diabetes was caused by eating too much fat. This would be a major moral boost for her! Besides, Coco's a monkey just like her! ;)

Annie said...

Did I miss this drawing? I've been wanting to get these (even asked my endo) to start explaining my diabetes to my five year old.

NikDuck said...

I am SO excited to have won! THANK YOU so much! I just sent you an email.
