Book Review - Kid Normal series

~ Posted on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at 11:28 AM ~

As a busy mum with 5 kiddos between 6 months old to 10-years old, I have started cutting down on doing product reviews to focus on my childcare and family life, home cooking, education, helping with hubby's administration site of the business and sharing informational articles on my FB fan page so I am only accepting and prioritizing products that can fit into our family dynamics (especially books on parenting or educational stuff, family products, something along those genre)! Reading is my passion and coupled with books that are of parenting, children, family or religion or educational genre, all the more I gotta say yes!

We received the "Kid Normal" books which I had intended for our 10-year-old boy to read as he is into books like this nowadays. I could see the similarity of the theme in the "Kid Normal" books with the Wimpy Kid series and Big Nate series in the sense that the fonts are easy on the eyes with the occasional contrasting font types when there is excitement, surprises and shocking sentences by the characters or in the storyline and the wacky illustrations all over the books which caught my boy's attention.

I like the unique storyline that a normal child could also be special. That it doesn't take any superpower abilities to stand out or to save the day. That as common as we feel we are, we do contribute and could help out no matter how big or small our contributions it seems.

Kid Normal

Overall, a fun book series to own especially if your child likes to read and/or they are venturing into chapter books!
