Our summer student workers have been very busy! Here are two more reviews of books they enjoyed.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days
author: Jeff Kinney
Greg’s in middle school and his idea of a fun summer is playing video games, but his mom does not agree. Greg writes a journal about his summer vacation with many pictures. Greg has many adventures like when his dad called the cops on him! Greg spends some of his time swimming with his friend Rowley at the country club and the rest of it getting punished. Greg’s mom wants to plan some family time and Greg does not agree.
This was a great book. I liked the way it was written, a fun journal with pictures. It was really funny and I think you would really enjoy it. I would recommend the book for fourth grade and up.

Ramona Quimby, Age 8
author: Beverly Cleary
illustrator: Alan Tiegreen
Ramona is going to a new school. She will be starting third grade. Ramona takes the bus with Howie. She’s nervous about the new school and her new teacher, Miss Whaley. Ramona decides to be a show-off and make students laugh. Ramona gets into all sorts of tricky situations. She is messy, loud and funny.
I think this is a great book for kids because it is funny and you can learn something. I would recommend this book for second, third or fourth graders.

Two great, funny books! (And both have been made into movies in the past year too!) Try one yourself, and see if you agree with Paul and Mooneyka!
