Looking for a great book for a reluctant reader? Well help is on the way. Not quite comic book, definitely not classic material, Jeff Kinney‘s Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is just pure fun. The newest adventure, Dog Days, was just released last week.
Here is the synopsis:
It’s summer vacation, the weather’s great, and all the kids are having fun outside. So where’s Greg Heffley? Inside his house, playing video games with the shades drawn.
Greg, a self-confessed “indoor person,” is living out his ultimate summer fantasy: no responsibilities and no rules. But Greg’s mom has a different vision for an ideal summer…one packed with outdoor activities and “family togetherness.”
Whose vision will win out? Or will a new addition to the Heffley family change everything?
The story is fast paced and the illustrations are witty. Kids will identify with Greg’s quest to spend time indoors while his mom tries to get him outside. The raw humor and semi-comic book format make it a great option for those older reluctant readers.
So sit back and join Greg Heffley and his family for a summer of togetherness.
