Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Are you looking for a fun book for your elementary age or early middle school boy on the perils of navigating middle school? If so, take a look at Diary of a Wimpy Kid--a fun-filled book that is reviewed over at BooksForKids blog:

Greg is a scrawny, socially untalented middle school newby who longs to be a popular and muscular ladies' man, but totally lacks the motivation to make the effort to get there. Instead he spends a lot of his energy trying to avoid schoolwork, get his hands on a video game called "Twisted Wizard," and hang out with his sidekick Rowley. Now, clueless as he is, Greg realizes that Rowley is still stuck in kidsville and admits that Rowley's status as "friend" is no sure thing...

Frankly, the book sounds a bit painful to me but perhaps the idea of making middle school trials fun instead of traumatic is a better why to go. Anyway, if you want to learn more about the book, read the review here.

I've read the review for this last week and it's a brilliant approach. I mean, there are a lot of kids who can identify with the main character[s].

A band called Loded Diper - almost worth the price of the book.

A lot of us could definitely have used some humor in middle school. My own experience forced me to conclude that teenagers are scum. Maybe this book will help a few of today's kids to maintain their social equilibrium.

I'm a dork, but I don't want to read books or see movies about dorks.

My son purchased this book at his school's bookfair yesterday and read it cover-to-cover in two evenings. He loved the book. He's 9.

Even this morning on the ride into school, he was sitting in the middle row of seats with his 6-year old brother reading exerpts from it.

All I could do was smile.
