Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days (paperback)
by Jeff Kinney
AR Level 5.2, 3 points
Since this is the fourth book in the series, I won’t bother with “what I liked” and “what I didn’t like” other than it wasn’t my favorite, but I did appreciate the semi-lesson at the end. Greg realized he and his dad have a decent relationship and they don’t have to agree on everything. I also like the way he reflected on his mom’s photo album: “the person who takes the pictures is the one who gets to tell the story.” This is a great example for my young writers during Writers Workshop and their personal narratives, or even the autobiographies I make them write each year.
