This is not a book just to sit down and read through but an activity book or a journal. However, the very first page says, "Whatever you do, just make sure you don't write down your 'feelings' in here. Because one thing's for sure: This is NOT a diary." There are all kinds of activities in which the readers can make lists, answer questions about various topics, make their own comics, draw pictures, and such like. Plus, the end contains 46 blank, lined pages with the instructions, "Use the rest of this book to keep a daily journal, write a novel, draw comic strips, or tell your life story." 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.

My eight year old Daryn Wolcott, dreaded to read every night for 30 minutes. I bought him the series Diary Of A Wimpy Kid, and he read two books in one week. Now He asks if he can read all day long. He reads out loud and is proud of it. When Daryn reads now he will read for hours, and its wonderful as a parent to see him enjoy himself doing it. Jeff Kinney helped my son get through the tough dreaded times of nightly reading, (mind you, Daryn already had a library in his room) The Do- It-Yourself Book, Is funny and lets him interact by writting in it, and amazingly when I looked inside of it, Daryn had his best hand writing! I am so proud of Daryn, And Thank you Jeff Kenney for helpping my son Daryn love to read!

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.

Bought this for a Christmas gift and was really shocked with durability of book! Kid I gave this to is in elementary of course and has a bad habit as must boys to just throw stuff in his backpack and go. So far after pulling it out pages are thick and not to easy to rip out. Hardcover front has some scratches however the binding is great and did not break in front or back if that makes any sense.

Did not have time to read before sending it to my friend. Rating is based on their assessment.

Highly recommend this book, it is a workbook type journal that your child will need to write in. My nine year old son loves it and it allows him to be an author and also write all about him. It was interesting as a parent to see what he wrote in it as well, one part has a brain and you draw "what is in your brain" what your thoughts are or your interests. very nicely done.
