Diary Of A Smart Kid

A few weeks ago, I bought the first three books of "Diary Of Wimpy Kid" by Jeff Kinney to read and was hoping that in a few years Ilham would be able to read them as well. So it's kind of like killing two birds with one stone :)

I really enjoyed reading the books especially the first one. It's so funny I just couldn't help smiling and laughing from the first page. It is definitely an excellent choice for reluctant readers - as stated by one of the reviews. When Ilham saw me reading the book, he wanted to read as well, now, and not when he is in grade 4 ( I told him earlier that he could read them when he's in that grade at least). Since he insisted to read the book, I gave in. Ilham loved the book, he finished it in a few days time. Now he thinks that he is big enough to read big kids' books !!!

Reading the book gives him the idea to have his own diary as well, and asked me to buy one for him. Thinking that it might be good to encourage him to write at home as well, (he has a journal to write in school) I bought one for him. He called it "Diary Of A Smart Kid" and this is what he wrote.....

He even drew himself like "Greg" the main character in the book :) . I do hope that he writes as often as possible.

Dear Cheqna,

First, Ilham insisted it's not a diary, it's a journal (if u read the book, u will know what i mean). Girls write in diary but boys write in journal :) But he still calls it Diary becoz the book is titled "Diary of...."

Secondly, the privacy policy does not have any meaning to him yet, lucky me :D

Try reading your niece's diary(since she gives permission). I think you will find yourself smiling and laughing :)
