Series: Diary of a Real Payne
Watch for Book 2 - Church Camp Chaos in March 2014!
Diary of a Real Payne is written seamlessly between first and third person narrative...
So I guess you could say we recommend this book. Highly recommend. I love how the book features a little girl who is bright, funny, and not perfect. She makes mistakes, she gets annoyed with her little brother, but overall, she finds that her faith keeps her strong.
The faith aspect is not contrived or thrown in, but woven seamlessly throughout the entire book.
Parents that love each other, a family that laughs and has fun together, friends that take care of each other...what more could you ask for in a story? A lot of laughter! And THAT you will get in Diary of A Real Payne, True Story. Oh, and I may just have shed a tear or two at the end. I am a sucker for a sweet ending!

This is a great book to read with your children before bed and here's why:
It tells your children how to use their imagination to make doing chores more fun!
You'll learn a fun new way to play scrabble.
You'll learn interesting facts about Marine One. (The helicopter that the President of the United States rides in)
The main character, EJ, has quite an imagination and daydreams a lot. The daydream sequences are funny and that may be
what your children enjoy most.
EJ also solves a mystery at the pie eating contest.
It shows examples of how EJ's family opens their home and hearts to others through acts of kindness. They invite their neighbors
to share their Thanksgiving dinner. They go to an assisted living facility to have tea at Christmas time with the residents. EJ
feels the warmth of forgiveness towards a girl who has been mean to her.
Overall, an excellent book
