Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney
#1 New York Times bestseller and Kids Choice Awards winner.
Kinney’s ten “diary” books encourage young people to try writing their own journals and to thus become writers in the process. Kinney draws his pictures on an electronic device and the simple drawings compliment the text. The stories help young people think through their own similar plots of life. Great ideas for self-help are contained within these pages. Kinney’s books are an inspiration for thinking about your own thinking (metacognition).
