Why Our Experts Love It
Everyone can relate to these wonderful tales.
Parents need to know that main character Greg usually doesn't do the right thing the first time around. His cluelessness about what would keep him out of trouble and why parents, teachers, and friends are upset with him is part of the book's humor, which leads the reader to any lesson Greg should be learning. Parents will appreciate that Rowley's dad researches video games on a parent Web site to see if they have too much violence. Also, it is clear that Greg's mom is working hard to raise respectful sons.We love these books because they are smart and funny! Diary of a Wimpy Kid is for the Winner in all of us!
