Have you read the newly launched “The Diary of Amos Lee – I’m Twelve, I’m Tough, I Tweet!” If you have not, grabbed a copy quick.
Knowing that my son is the die-hard fan of The Diary of Amos Lee, I bought the book for him as his Christmas gift. And you guess it right, he thanked me profusely !
Well, he finished reading the book in a day, so have I 😉 I can see why my son likes the book so much. It’s easy to read and the diary relates very well to what’s happening around him. In the book, Amos Lee is in his last year of primary school (though my son will only be in P5 next year). The internet reality surfaced in this book (Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, blogging, etc). It also touches on what friendship, relationship between siblings, and the big word – BULLY! I must give Adeline Foo a thumb-up.
As a mother of a primary school kid, it helps me to understand the “in” things and issues what primary school students are facing. I’m encouraging you, all mothers, read The Diary of Amos Lee if you have not. It’s awesome !
Now, I’m wondering if Amos will be writing his diary now he will be in secondary school ????
PS: I read from my blog that some of you do not really like The Diary of Amos Lee. Well, personally, I think the book is a good read for young children and as an adult, I do enjoy reading it. Individual preference, I guess 😉
