activity book for kids who like the Wimpy Kid books
When The Diary of a Wimpy Kid, which tells the story of Greg Heffley, his family, and his friends, first came out, I heard about it but did not read it because it didn't sound as if it would appeal to me. Later, I was sent a copy of one of the sequels (#5, The Ugly Truth) to review, and my reading of it confirmed my earlier opinion that this kind of book is just not my cup of tea. However, the books are immensely popular with many children, so youngsters who do like "The Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series might well enjoy the activities in this book. The Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book was first published in 2008, but the updated edition is expanded with more than sixty new pages, and has 32 pages of full-color comics, including sixteen brand-new. It is designed to inspire creative expression and encourage reluctant readers.

Excellent book for reading/mentoring students
Working with 16 boys a week, 7-11, grades 2-5, requires a constant search for suitable reading/writing materials that challenge them and provide them a safe way to express themselves. This book has been a gold mind for me to use with some of my most reluctant readers and writers. They tend to be a challenge to their teachers, too! This book allows them to share themselves in writing and with imagination. All of them seem to enjoy it and give them an opportunity to expand themselves. I highly recommend it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
