Christmas Shopping List Suggestion
My ten-year-old found this book at http://www.funbrain.com/. My wife is a fourth grade teacher and she has a link to the site on her webpage. Since I'm teaching at the university on Mondays and Wednesdays, Chandler stays late with her. He found this book (the entire book!) on the webpage and read it all. So you can take it for a test drive.
My wife said he was rolling with laughter every day and couldn't wait to get his homework done so he could continue reading. Now this is a book, folks, if it can nail a kid to the story so well.
I checked and found that the book is offered at http://www.barnesandnoble.com/ and http://www.amazon.com/. I ordered it for my guy, and I'm going to read it and review it.
So...if you love books and have a reluctant reader in your house or have a niece of nephew you need to get something for at Christmas, I'd recommend this book base on Chandler's willingness to sit me down and tell me about it.
It's also the first of a series. The second book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, comes out in February '08.
