Tween Tuesday: Diary of a Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book

What can keep five middle schoolers busy (and laughing) in a crowded van? What can keep a talkative and active fourth grader quiet and focused for over thirty minutes?

You got it! The newest Diary of a Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself book.

When I heard that there was going to be a new edition of this book I wasn't going to buy it because we already had the old versions. I was surprised with a copy in the mail, though and was so glad I got it!

Besides the obvious fact that it keeps whoever is using it entertained, I have found another excellent benefit for having more than one copy. It is like a diary for my children. I have two boys and neither of them keep diaries. But now I have a little slice of their lives saved that both they and I can reflect back upon someday.

My younger son Max is the one that has been filling this one out the most. Sometimes he is silly when he fills out a page and sometimes he is serious. Either way, I love reading over what he has done. His pages make me smile. Someday when he is older I will cherish these books!

Thanks so much for sending me this Laura! We loved it.

Tween Tuesday is hosted by Sarah, the GreenBeanTeenQueen. Thanks Sarah!

  3. What a great idea! Plus it builds the creative side rather than just watching DVD's in the car. :)

  4. You know it might be fun to do a wimpy kid event at the library and have a couple of these for a draw! Glad your kids are filing them up!
