One of the most popular series for elementary ages is Diary of a Wimpy Kid by University of Maryland grad, Jeff Kinney. Main character, Greg Heffley, is described by my third grade daughter as “someone that every kid can identify with” and delights elementary fans everywhere. Smart yet dorky Greg has his share of challenges in and out of school as he moves from tweendom to adolescence and ensures older brother, Rodrick’s ribbing, and constant parental embarrassment.
