Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Boys in our culture are raised to achieve, to hide such feelings as uncertainty and fear, to compete rather than cooperate. Boys also trail girls in reading and a love of books. What parents, grandparents, teachers, and librarians need is a tool that will guide them to the books that will inspire all kinds of boys and keep them coming back for more. Now Kathleen Odean, a former member of the esteemed Caldecott and Newbery Award committees, has compiled and annotated GREAT BOOKS FOR BOYS, a unique and invaluable collection of more than six hundred boos — picture-story books, novels, mysteries, biographies, folktales, sports books, and more — that will fascinate and educate boys ages two to fourteen. Here are classic characters such as Bilbo Baggins and Frog and Toad; new favorites like Bingo Brown and Martin the Warrior; and real-life inspirations such as the Wright brothers, Jackie Robinson, and Marco Polo.

More than just a pastime, literature is a key to the unexplored. And the boys who discover reading from these books will be embarking on an adventure that will fuel their dreams for the rest of their lives.
