There are many those kids could be doing, watching TV, playing sport, or playing play station or Xbox. There are lots of activities for young boys. But to get them to love reading, you have to offer them books they will enjoy reading. Diary series by Shamini Flint is an excellent read for those reluctant boys at the age of 8-11 years. These books aren’t too long, and they involve sport. They feature plenty of black and white illustrations and with speech bubbles. They are also brief making them a perfect read for reluctant readers.

Shamini Flint began her Diary series in 2010 when Diary of a Soccer Star the first book in the series was published. Since then more than ten books have been published. The author lives in Singapore with her family (husband and two children).

Diary of a Soccer Star

Diary of a Soccer Star is the first book in a series of children books by Shamini Flint. The book tells the story of 9-year-old boy Marcus Atkinson who loves computer games but hates sport. However, his father is certain that if his son gets involved in a sport, he will discover hidden sporting skills and talents but Marcus isn’t sure if that would work.

So Marcus decides to keep a diary to record all the horrors that await him as his father signs him with a soccer coaching program. With a combination of drawing and words, Marcus shares in his diary the ups and downs of soccer and a shocking soccer tournament final.

The first book in Diary series, Diary of Soccer Star is a humorous story featuring the clumsy Marcus, his friends and family, and his motivational and overly enthusiastic father. Marcus diary tries to share his embarrassment at being unable to catch up with the sporty kids and his anger with dad.

Marcus is annoyed and frustrated by his dad’s pushiness. But regardless of all this, Diary of a soccer star is not a sad story. The main character bounces back from any setbacks and makes some good friends along the way and some small wins as well but not the way his father expected. Additionally, the story is full of humor in the main character’s confusion over football terms used by his other players and the coach as well. The real meanings of these football terms are included in the dialogue.

While the subject and the book format is great for children, and the vocabulary is a bit advanced, and so its recommended younger readers have an adult with them to help them understand in detail about the trick words.

Diary of a Cricket God

Marcus is a Maths nerd who hates sports. His father is a self author who thinks that Marcus can achieve anything in his life with hilarious results. Illustrated in a diary format, comic drawings, and satiric humor will have younger readers laughing out while getting more information about cricket.
Again poor Marcus has troubles again, so many problems such that his dog feels sorry for him. His Dads thinks that Marcus has a future in playing cricket, but the little boy can’t understand why anyone would want to play with a round brick. He’s even shocked at first because he thinks cricket is some sorts of insect.

Children books help improve a child’s emotional and cerebral development. While interactions between a child and a parent are important, book reading it provides a basis into a child’s life. These books help them improve on their personality and social skills. Since children are impressionable in the first years of their life, exposure to reading materials at this stage helps them to be intelligent, courteous and caring people later in life.

Literature also enhances emotional intelligence in children. Stories help promote morals and emotions as this literature contains moments of trouble where the characters have to make decisions and justify the reasons for the decisions they make. Shamini Flint Diary series not only is capable of improving a child’s literacy skills but also can help them develop passion in non-classroom activities-sports.
