The Zippity Zinger #4: The Zippity Zinger The Mostly True Confessions of the World's Best Underachiever (Hank Zipzer) Reviews
My son and I have read the first 3 books in the Hank Zipzer series together. We enjoyed each one, especially the underlying theme of hope for children who learn differently. This fourth book, was the turning point where my son actually is reading the book alone. If I could contact Mr. Winkler I would like to thank him for being such a great role model for kids who are bright and creative but have difficulties in areas that the rest of us take for granted. The print is large and the vocabulary is not overwhelming yet the stories are fun and meaningful for the tween age group. We can't wait for the 5th book to come out in May 2004.
My 8 year old son LOVES the Hank Zipzer Series! He has ADHD and struggles with all the things Hank struggles with. It is so fun to see his face when Hank gets into trouble, and starts up his shenanigans. I usually read the books to him at night, but I couldn't read enough for him so he has started devouring them on his own. Great lessons, great friendship and great fun!
I got this book for my nephew who is dyslexic and he said he really liked it and reading is not his favorite activity! So I consider it a real win/win!
8 year old grandson loves Hank Zipzer.
These are a great series of books for my 9 year old dyslexic son. They are funny and well written, very similar to the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid' series. However, since my son is dyslexic in the 3rd grade, they are a little above his reading level. I believe when he gets in 4th or 5th grade, he will enjoy them more than he does now because he can read them easier. When I read them to him, he really likes them. I highly recommend this series. It helps my son know that someone famous (Henry Winkler) wrote the books and had similar issues since they are based on some of his own experiences growing up with dyslexia. I bought several in this series and am very pleased.
My daughter is simply enjoying reading all her Hank Zipzer'd books. awesome collection.
Henry Winkler is absolutely brilliant! I bought book 1 for my 9 year old son a while back and he told me he wanted more Hank Zipzer books. I was thrilled because he is not a big reader like I am. He is more into outdoors and sports. He was diagnosed with ADHD last year and even though the books don't talk about ADHD, it is easy for my son to identify with the struggle that Hank has and they make us laugh out loud!
The Hank Zipzer series written by Henry Winkley and Lin Oliver are wonderful! I ordered several books and my 9 y/o son is whipping right through them. My son also has a slight learning disability and relates well to these books.
