Blog Post of a Wimpy Kid Fan

23 Mar


Nia is all about reading some kid’s diary and it’s so great. Actually, she would likely correct me and tell me that he really wants it to be called a journal. She has entered into the reader’s world of befriending book characters. This Wimpy Kid and his adventures have captured her heart and imagination and it’s wonderful to share in her excitement.

She finished the first book in two days. (She counted down to us as she turned the pages – asking us to subtract 152 from the total.) When she turned that final page, we knew we needed to continue her Wimpy Kid connection so we drove the 30 minutes to the nearest open bookstore and bought each book in the series, plus a special one about the movie.

She’s now nearing the end of the second book but she’s not happy with the interruptions of the school week. Like, the bus rides in the morning. She told us it was too dark for her to read and asked us if she could bring a small flashlight. She now has a book light to help expand her reading time. She’ll soon be finished with all the them and waiting for the author to write more. Good thing there are movies to tide her over…



Happy to Have Them All!


Nate is inspired too!

    That is so great – what a fun, healthy passion to have! Can’t wait until she’s ready for Harry Potter.

      Me too! We have a few more books to read that have been on her read list and then I plan to introduce her to the young Mr. Potter.

    This sounds like me! I used to sneak a flashlight into my bed at night and read under the covers. I am still this way, and will not put a good book down until I know what happens! This will help her so much in the long run! It is a great outlet; when I have a bad day I come home and read a good book in the bathtub to relax and I always feel better. I even used it as an outlet in college to relax when I was frustrated. And it’s great that she is inspiring Nate too! We are just starting to teach Owen to read (he will be 5 in July, so he is a little younger than Nate), and he is SO proud of himself. Watching that success on his face is one of the best things about being a parent, which I’m sure you know!
