We've all heard this, haven't we? Boys and books don’t go together. We heard it in library school, we might see it among our patrons, and maybe even experience it at home with the boys in our lives

Some outside the square ideas for what works with boys, but none of these ideas need be exclusive to them. I like the emphasis on relationship building for long term success. Settng up activities which don't start with books but can easily include them is an excellent soft sell option. Recognising that many kids want to do things rather than talk about them opens up interesting options.

Oxford Owl is a collection of free children’s ebooks for learners ages 3-11. Each ebook has accompanying audio so that learners can choose to read along, or read independently. The books also have activities focusing on reading comprehension and story recall. There are several options for filtering the ebooks including by...
- age,
- book type, and
- by series.
As well as the eBooks visitors will find...
- activities and recommendations for each age group,
- games to print and play, and
- online games with characters from the books and site.
NOTE: Oxford Owl is flash-based. Not ideal at all for a learning environment full of iPads. Luckily, there are solutions. There are several Flash Browsers that you can download for the iPad to view flash content. My current preference is Photon.
