"Mom Made Us Write This In The Summer (Max and Maggie Journal)" by Ali Maier
REVIEW BY MIA MADDEN - AGED 11.
We received a copy of this title from netgalley.com in return for an honest review...
This book is journal of 10 year old twins, Maggie and Max and how they spent their summer. Their Mom made them do it to keep them from fighting with each other, They have to choose six topics each and then both have to write all twelve topics in their journal. For example, Maggie chooses 'The Zoo' and then they both write about what happened there. This was one off the funniest bits, especially when the Hippo poos! Max also has an accident with a ball, a slingshot and a garbage disposal unit . The twins fight, just like all kids, so that makes the book realistic. I enjoyed this book, but because I had to read a digital version, it had no pictures and the notes written in the journal entries got a bit confusing. I had to ignore the smaller font and concentrate on the normal sized writing. I would really like to see the pictures, especially of the zoo. I would recommend this for ages 8+
