"6 Books for Boys Who Hate Reading"

Whitney Collins, on behalf of Barnes & Noble, listed 6 books that will get young boys, who don't like to read, reading.  Along with a 1-word category, they are:

Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Jeff Kinney - commiserating
George's Marvelous Medicine - Roald Dahl - naughty
Attack of the Giant Hampster - Dr. Roach - gross
Bunnicula - Deborah Howe - scary
Interrupting Chicken - David Ezra Stein - funny
On Board the Titanic:  What it was Like When the Great Liner Sank - Shelley Tanaka - tragic

For a detailed description of why each book will appeal to young male readers, click on the link below.

  2. Based on reading your blog over the last year plus, it looks like you're doing a great job of teaching him to love books. Nice.
