Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a Great Read

I absolutely LOVE the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Movies!
They are just so funny and the boys love them as well.
It helps that it is not childish (so that I can enjoy with the 11, 13 and 15 year olds...) but it isn't too mature either (even Broxton laughs at it!)

So, when I saw that they have even more books than just the movies...
I was excited...   For more than one reason.
One - that means that there should be more movies eventually!
Two- maybe, just maybe, I can get them to read a book every now and then.

Last week, a girlfriend of mine and I got to chatting about the movies/ books.
Having the boys throughout the year, I was familiar with the movies more...
Her as a teacher, she was familiar with the books.

Have you ever looked at one of the books?!
It is actually pretty neat!  So much more fun than just reading a book too!!!
It is like a mixture of a book... added in with a touch of comic book types!
I am not a comic book fan, but they keep younger kids interested and this sort of fits the description with keeping their attention!

The simple stick figure drawings that we are familiar with because of the inclusion in the movies is scattered throughout the story...
I tell you what... I wish I would have been half as creative and artistic as Greg when I was in my diary/journal stage!
We had the chance to review Diary of a Wimpy Kid : Cabin Fever.
I have realized that when I was growing up, I had my series of books that I loved...
( I still have some that I kept... they were that important to me!)
I know that this is a series that will be important to youth of today.
That being said, I want to get the ones that are currently out now for when Broxton is a bit older.
He loves the movies now and maybe he will enjoy the reading of the books when he is a older.

As an adult, I still found humor in the book....
Especially when Greg is trying to earn money by shoveling the driveways!
He stops at one house to try to make a little money... but the lady tells him she never gets visitors and invites him in...  He then says he figures if he was going to try and make money, the least he could do was be nice.. but the whole time he was there all he could think about was how much money he could be making if he had gone and knocked on another door!
I know how kids think and this just made me crack up laughing!!!

About Cabin Fever:


Greg Heffley is in big trouble. School property has been damaged, and Greg is the prime suspect. But the crazy thing is, he’s innocent. Or at least sort of.
The authorities are closing in, but when a surprise blizzard hits, the Heffley family is trapped indoors. Greg knows that when the snow melts he’s going to have to face the music, but could any punishment be worse than being stuck inside with your family for the holidays?
