Book Review: Middle School: The Inside Story by Cynthia Tobias and Sue Acuna

*****This review is meant for parents, teachers, and other people that work with children to read.*****

Middle school can be a challenging time for kids. They often struggle to fit in and are figuring out who they are. They are often moody for reasons that their parents and other adults might not understand. Kids that wanted to spend so much time with their moms and dads during their pre-school and elementary years are now often distancing themselves from them. In "Middle School: The Inside Story" information is shared from the authors about how to handle and understand middle school kids better. Stories are also shared from both kids and parents to help understand what goes through their minds. It also encourages readers to consider that people process the world differently, so everybody's experiences will not be exactly the same. 

This book was interesting to me because I have a niece who has been in middle school for awhile and another niece who is about to start middle school. I have been noticing a lot of changes in them and now I can see that they are just being kids of middle school age. Their ideas of fun have changed and they are often trying new ways to amuse themselves.

This book will give parents and other people who care for middle school kids different approaches to talking to them and trying to understand better what they are going through.

My rating = 5 out of 5 stars
