It's a new school year and Greg Heffley finds himself thrust into the harsh landscape of secondary school, where undersized weaklings have to share the hallways with kids who are six-feet-tall, dating and already shaving. While Greg's days are focused on school survival, he's happy to have Rowley, his reliable punching-bag sidekick, along for the ride. But when his best friend's star starts to rise at school, Greg tries to use Rowley's newfound popularity to his advantage. "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" is about everyday secondary school experiences and author/illustrator Jeff Kinney makes us recall our own childhood as we look back on just how perilous school can be. The warts-and-all experiences of his alter ego, Greg Heffley, are recorded in a diary that Greg's mother bought him to make him more "thoughtful." But as Greg says, "Just don't expect me to be all 'Dear Diary' this and 'Dear Diary' that. If she thinks I'm going to write down my 'feelings' or whatever in here, she's crazy." However, as in all the best coming-of-age stories, what Greg Heffley says he won't do and what he actually does are two very different things.

Warning Poor Role Model
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.

A book to reignite your kids passion for reading
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!
