Mom Made Us Write This In The Summer (Max and Maggie Journal) by Ali Maier was a really enjoyable read for the boys and me.
It has been a while since we last read a Diary Entry type of storybook. The last one which we read being the Diary of a Whimpy Kid: Hard Luck.
This book was more interesting as it portrays two different characters, Maggie and Max and their style of writing.
The boys and me enjoyed reading the journal entries and there were distinct differences between a boy and a girl’s way of writing. We loved looking at the pictures that they accompanied each journal entry.
The drawings were very hilarious and really gave a better insight to what Maggie and Max were trying to convey through their journal entries.
I found the journal exercise really interesting and tried it out with the boys during the current end of year vacations.
So far they have done 3 journal entries and we are attempting to do a minimum of 6 entries during this 6 week long end of year vacations.
I found this an excellent way to get the boys interested in writing and it certainly made it more fun for them to express themselves in both pictorial and words.
Do get a copy of Mom Made Us Write This In The Summer (Max and Maggie Journal) by Ali Maier if you are looking at a fun read for the kids this holidays.
