Dear Dumb Diary Worth Reading AND Watching

One of the things my husband and I have tried to instill in our daughter since she was a toddler is a love of reading. I remember that books were some of my best friends when I was her age, and I loved using my imagination to vividly visualize the things I was reading. This focus on reading has worked, for the most part, and she can often be found lost in a book.

Among her favorite reads is the Dear Dumb Diary series. She started reading them a couple of years ago when my niece passed several of the books down to her, and she always loves getting a new book. So when Walmart offered us the chance to get a new book from the series in advance of the TV premiere of the Dear Dumb Diary movie tonight on the Hallmark Channel, we were only too happy to oblige.


My daughter read and reviewed “Dear Dumb Diary: My Pants are Haunted.” These are her words:

I just read a Dear Dumb Diary book, and mainly the book is about a girl named Jamie Kelly who has a beagle. Her beagle is mad at her because she didn’t give him her leftovers, so he kept eating holes in her pants and she thought her pants were haunted.

I liked this book because most of the characters act crazy sometimes. They were sometimes a little cocky, but it was funny. It was one of the best books I’ve ever read.

My favorite part of the book was when a girl named Angeline asked Jamie if she could have her pants. Jamie said yes. When Angeline put on the pants, she found out that there were big holes in them, and everybody was staring at her.

I think the author Jim Benton should keep writing these books. I would definitely like to read more. They are really funny. Thanks for listening!

My daughter devours these books, and we can’t wait to see the movie based on the series. It premieres tonight on the Hallmark Channel. If you miss it, you’ll get another chance to watch on 9/13 and 10/11. If the books are any indication, this is the type of film that would make for a great family movie night. You can also grab the DVD at Walmart stores for $16.96 starting Tuesday.

Check out the cute and hilarious trailer:

You can also get some inspiration for fashion looks based on the movie over at Pinterest.
