Rated 5 out of 5★ by Chopsticks31 Reading solution for my 8 year old son! My son is 8 years old and has never found a book that doesn't lose his interest within a day or two. My son is in third grade but reads at a first grade level because he doesn't practice his reading. I bought him the first Wimpy Kid book a month ago and he was excited to read it EVERY night! The books have drawings on every page which helps keep his interest and they always make him laugh which makes our reading time fun and he enjoys it. The dialogue is hilarious and my son completely relates to the stories, such as playing video games or being grounded. The Wimpy Kid books are well worded for my son and he can now read a couple pages without needing very much help from me which has helped his confidence tremendously.Also, the stories are broken up to daily journal pages, so after each journal page I ask him to recap what happened, and so he will try his best to summarize what happened, and then I help him by reminding him of other things that happened as well, which helps strengthen his reading skills as well. Many other chapter books just go on for pages and don't offer a chance to summarize the reading after a page or two, which is so much easier for an 8 year old and the more he has done this, the more his summarizing skills have improved as well as his reading comprehension.I would also like to add that I actually enjoy this book and all of the books of the Wimpy Kid series, which also adds to the enjoyment of our reading time because while practicing his reading, we are also bonding!It's an amazing series, the solution to my sonâ€™s reading problems! 12/21/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by BoysXThree Best of Series Mr. Kinney is a genius, getting my non-reader to want to read. He loved the first 2 books and couldn't wait for this one, ended up reading it all in one day! He says it was worth waiting for, the best one yet. 01/14/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by HappyToKnow Great Book! My son has read all of the Wimpy Kid books. He loves them and can't put the books down! Great addition! He is already asking when a new one will come out! This was the best price I found for the book at WalMart 02/15/2009
