Ever try to explain to someone born in this century that, once upon a time, every waking hour wasn’t spent looking at a screen?
Next time, save yourself the trouble and pick up Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Old School to give to your favorite 8- to 12-year-old. (Or you can enter for a chance to win one of ten signed copies of the just-published illustrated novel.)
Since “wimpy kid” Greg Heffley is the hero of the best-selling book series (and movies), you probably already know him. If not, you must meet: He’s the acerbic middle-school-aged boy whose hapless efforts to navigate life are relatable and funny (even to adults). In the latest installment, Greg starts a new school year just as his town goes electronics-free (the horror!). Will he be able to make his own entertainment, or will life as he knows it end?
Get the book to find out--and remember, every minute spent reading is one less minute spent playing video games.
