My 5th grade daughter loves the Dork Diaries series. This purchase was to make sure she had every book in the series that she had been missing.Instead of toys or more slime... she asked for books... A PARENTS DREAM!! I love to hear or see my daughter reading one of the books from the series and she starts laughing aloud at something that happens in the books. Or she wants to come share with me something that happened in the books. My daughter loves the writing and drawings in the books. My daughter also likes to listen to the audiobook version for free through the local libraries online platform. Sometimes she will listen to the book as she is reading the hard copy at the same time. My daughter's confidence in reading out loud has grown with this book series. While driving in the car, instead of playing music I would have her read the book(s) to me. We spend mommy & daughter time reading the series together as well. Not too bad of a hardship since the author does a wonderful job with the series. Reminds me of something that I would have read at her age. The series has also encouraged my daughter to keep journals too. So far we have every book in this collection and she is looking forward to The Misadventure of Max Crumbly series by the author as well. Usually after finishing a book, my daughter likes to donate them to her school library... but this is one series she likes to hold on too... reminds me of my love for the Babysitters Club.

My 4th grade daughter LOVES this series! Has a bit of the young love to it, and deals with mean girls, but at that age, kids are getting more and more curious about these types of things anyways. Bought it prior to its release date, which allowed it to be delivered on the day it was released. She read the entire book that evening and has since reread it a billion times!
We just received this book a few days ago and my daughter has already finished it!! She loved it. I love hearing her laughing in her bedroom when she’s reading books from the Dork Diary Series. Highly recommend.

This book is pathetic.It's pathetic because Nikki (the main character)has this crush called Brandon and this man named andré comes everyone thinks that Nikki and andré are a couple. Nikki hates andré.Brandon gets mad and thinks Nikki doesn't like him anymore.Mackenzie and Bethany(2mean girls)make fun of the girl called Nikki and the man called andré.
