Book News Annotation:

A long-time children's librarian and library director, Sullivan (library and information science, Simmons College, Boston) follows his 2003 volume with a second on how librarians can counter the cultural stereotypes that drive boys away from libraries and books. He discusses such aspects as boys and girls being different, exposing boys to stories, promoting reading to boys, and creating the culture of literacy.

In this companion book, Sullivan digs even deeper, melding his own experiences as an activist with perspectives gleaned from other industry experts.
