One of my grandsons has asked for the latest book in this series for his birthday next month, to complete his treasured hardcover collection.
The books are the journals of an ordinary kid filled with hand written notes and simple stick drawings of his daily adventures. They’re fun to read, and it’s easy to identify with the main character and his friends and the situations he gets himself into.
There is also a do-it-yourself book which encourages creating your own diary and drawings. I’ve seen some results, and yes, they’re my grandkids’ and I’m biased, but they’re the best things I’ve ever read.
I know first hand that this series of books encourages a child’s love of reading, his creativity and his feelings of self acceptance and self-worth. Good stuff for any kid.
