Peirce Big Nate Lives It UpMy 5th graders love the Big Nate books because all of those pesky words are intertwined with amusing sketches that keep them entertained. The easy to read format also helps lower leveled readers get through the book quickly. In this book Nate has been forced to help the new kid at school who is not so fun. He wants nothing more than to ditch the kid and go play with his other friends, especially after realizing the kid is the bully from Nate’s past. Nate must work through those emotions and figure out that it takes a lot of patience and kindness to help others in life.
