The hazards of growing up are uniquely revealed through words and drawings as Greg records them in his diary.Hide synopsis
my sons could not stop reading. I was curious of the content matter and I was hooked. We have read most of the series except the ugly truth. Just to mention the books were in excellent condition. Thanks alibris
While I appreciate any book that sparks the love of reading in kids; parents should be aware that the role model that Greg presents is a very poor one indeed. He terrorizes younger kids then lets his "best friend" take the blame, he begs his parents for expensive gifts that he has no intention of using, and he never sees the "wrong" that he is doing to others. I hope that parents would take the time to talk about some of the situations with their kids.
I had a great time finding lots of good books for my daughter to read as she was 3, 4 and 5 years old. Then she started to outgrow the preschool books but as I looked in the youth book section of our library it was saying one thing...boring. She went from a passionate reader to a one year drought. So here comes Diary of a Wimpy Kid. It's cartoons fill virtually every page, yet it is not a comic book , it is a real book, which reads like a 5th grader's journal. It reminds me of The Simpson's, in that it is constantly funny. The main character Gregory is not a bad kid, but he is a very real kid. There is part of him in all of us and everything he does or thinks is something we can all relate to. Read Rodrick Rules, just as good and will be ready for the third edition coming soon I hope. Ready should stay fun for 7 year olds too!
