Boys and girls are different, and that's just fine. ~ Boys Do Read

Boys and girls are different, and that's just fine. ~ Boys Do Read | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

"One of the most common arguments that I read in the comments section of blogs that discuss boys and reading is that boys ought to be reading the same stuff as girls. That there is no need for there to be a distinction between good "Boy" books and good "Girl" books. That there is no reason to design a cover to appeal to one gender or the other because those opinions are merely "social pressure" creating and forcing gender roles on the poor kids."

What do Stories Look Like: The Art of the Book Cover -TEDTalk | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

Enter the world of Chip Kidd, associate art director at Knopf, who has designed covers for many famous books.

WARNING: you may not want to use this with younger classes, there is some adult language.
