Diary of a Wimpy Kid
My oldest daughter has never been a big reader so I have always tried to find books that would catch her attention. It's easier said than done. If a book is to long she looses interest right a way. A book really needs to grab her attention and keep it. Many books I've suggested she read take a little while to get interesting so it's a real struggle to keep reading it. Book report books are the worst, but they must get done.
One day when she was in 5th grade we were in the book store and she picked up Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney. I'd never heard of it, but she told me that this was really popular right now and everyone said it was really funny. I asked her if she wanted to read it and she said she would. She seemed so enthusiastic I thought. Why not. If she'll read it I'm all for it. It's rare for her to really want to read anything.
We got home that day and she headed up stairs to read. I was in shock. She is never that interested in reading anything. She was finished the next day. I asked her if she liked it. She said she loved it. It was very funny and she couldn't wait for the next one to come out. I was thrilled. Anything that gets kids to read especially my kid I'm all for.
These books have a different kind of set up to them that I feel doesn't intimidate kids. They look fun. The words look hand written and there are different cartoons throughout the book. No, this isn't a classical novel, but it is a novel that children will enjoy reading and in some cases relate to what the child is going through in the book. Again I'm sure it's not for every child, but it is for mine.
There have been as of this past week 4 books released in the series.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days
I have purchased the last one for my daughter for Christmas. I know she will love it. My youngest one is almost old enough to read them as well. I feel the age level associated with these books is appropriate at 9-12 years.
So if your looking for a great book to get a child in this age that will be a quick and easy read give these a try. You won't be sorry.
