Diary of  A Wimpy Kid Week: Day Five - Do It Yourself Book Review

About the Book: Now every kid can write like a Wimpy Kid!
 
An exciting companion to the bestselling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.
 
“First of all, let me get something straight: This is a journal, not a diary.”
 
This innovative interactive journal based on Greg Heffley’s own “diary” lets kids express themselves in an exciting new way. In Diary of a Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book, kids will be asked: What was the best dream you ever had? The worst thing you ever ate? The best secret you ever heard? The most trouble you ever got in for something that wasn’t even your fault to begin with? This Do-It-Yourself Book features art throughout, along with ruled and blank pages for readers to create their own stories, keep their own diaries, and record their favorites and least faves. Includes a bonus full-color comics section featuring the collected cartoons of Greg Heffley and his best friend, Rowley.
 
Includes
16 pages of full-color comics!

Our Take: The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series only features four actual books, and then we have two complimentary titles that are a ton of fun.  We're going to examine the first of these right now....the Do It Yourself Guide.

My son is 7 years old and when he started to come home raving about the Wimpy Kid series the recurring theme that I kept hearing was the 'Do it Yourself' book.  I had no idea what this was, but it turns out that its this interactive template to help your child write their own 'Wimpy Kid' style story.  This is one of the most novel and fun ideas that I've seen in a long while.  Home run!
