Product Description

It’s summer vacation, the weather’s great, and all the kids are having fun outside. So where’s Greg Heffley? Inside his house, playing video games with the shades drawn.
Greg, a self-confessed “indoor person,” is living out his ultimate summer fantasy: no responsibilities and no rules. But Greg’s mom has a different vision for an ideal summer . . . one packed with outdoor activities and “family togetherness.”
Whose vision will win out? Or will a new addition to the Heffley family change everything?

5Great memory book for your child's keepsakes
By Angelina Rausch
This particular purchase was a gift for a friends son, but I still have my 12 year olds sons book from 4 years ago. It's full of stories to be completed by your child and so funny to look back on when they're older. The hardback is very durable, has held up through a crazy (now 12 years old, as the photo shows:) ) boys toting it around and a move. I'll be holding on to this forever.

4A Review from the Tattooed Preacher
By Aaron D. Davis (Author - @TattooPreacher)
My 6 year old son began reading "Wimpy Kid" books just as he was learning to read. Many times I would allow him to read before bed and would hear him laughing hysterically in his room. Now, 7 years old, he has read all of them and often will pick them up and read them again. They are silly, but the appeal to his age demographic was actually amazing to me. I didn't have to make him read... he wanted to read. And he loved them all. I would recommend the entire series to any parent of a child who is learning and becoming comfortable with reading comprehension.

5All of my kids always request these books when they reach 8 years old or so.....
By i♥Prime
Very popular book for two of my kids. My 15 year old wanted this set when he was in the third grade and now my daughter who is a 3rd grader wants these as well. My son was very behind in reading and these kept his attention and had enough drawings to keep him interested. My daughter is an A/B Honor roll student who enjoys reading and these keep her attention as well. Cute, funny stories that are pretty age appropriate; although reading then as a mother...I do catch some words like stupid, etc.... that I don't care for. I'm willing to let that slide - just to make sure my children are reading..... as opposed to being illiterate. Nice boxed, hardcover set...maybe they will last until the 4 year old is in the 3rd grade!?!? :-) A little overpriced around the holidays but worth it in the whole scheme of things. I'd rather buy pricey books that other junky toys!
