Avoiding the Summer Reading Slide | Answers | Scoop.it

"While all of these sites are fabulous, who are the most difficult people to excite about reading? Inevitably, boys are much more reluctant readers than girls. So some of my favorite sites to send parents and teachers to in search of good book recommendations specifically for boys include www.booksforboys.com, www.boysread.org and popular children author Jon Sciezka’s www.guysread.com."

 

The author has also written another post on this blog titled, 'Ten ways to get boys reading'.
