This book is about two boys in middle school Greg and Rowley. Rowley get a girl friend and things start to change between their friendship. Greg trys to find other suitable things to do and friends but nothing and noone is like his friend Rowley. In the end they become best friends again and start to do things all over like friends should. THis is a great book for the third or fourth grade. ( )

For once, I'd have rathered a book from Fregley's perspective. Due to Greg's friendship miscalculations, Fregley becomes Mr Popularity. Greg becomes a member of the yearbook club. All in all, I think we're seeing some small growth from Greg. ( )

Another great Wimpy Kid book for grade 4 and up. The entire book is basically a journal written by a boy named Greg. He is trying to find his place at school, which is something I think children can relate too. An extension activity that can done with this book would be to have the students write their own journals.

Grade Level: 4th grade and up
This book is about the friendship of two young boys by the name of Rowley and Greg, that was broken apart by a girl. Greg is the main character in the story and Rowley is his childhood best friend. During the current school year Rowley gets a girlfriend and that puts a stop to everything that Greg and Rowley used to do with each other. Aside from the friendship problems, Greg is going through even more trails with his immediate and extended family.
This is a good book to incorporate into cause and effect lessons.The book provides plenty of examples of events that happened to Greg because of the choices he made. For example, when he decided to wear his body blanket to school. He gets to class and literally can not move, he also has a magic 8 ball in his possession that falls during his test making the teacher think that he is cheating, and that causes him to have to go to summer school.
