"CBC's Fresh Air recently assembled a reading panel of Ontario bookstore managers: Susan Chamberlain of The Book Keeper in Sarnia, Jean Begin of The Real Bookshelf in Thunder Bay and Itah Sadu of A Different Booklist in Toronto. All agreed that at times it may be challenging to get boys to read, but there are more books than ever that appeal to boys and parents should be encouraging them to discover the literature that's out there."-  informative audio discussion about boys and reading.

It's not JUST about gender | Boyz Books | Scoop.it

"If you offer an aliterate reader a "good boy book" based solely on the gender of the protagonist you may very well be offering him one he thinks is "boring." Here's why...AND THIS IS KEY!"

such a great resource. Graphic novels are quite foreign to me and websites like this make incorporating them into classwork less daunting.
