Beyond "Boy Books"

Beyond "Boy Books" | Multicultural Children's Literature | Scoop.it
It happens all the time at my library. A parent walks up to me and says, “My son has to read a book for school. He’s in 7th grade. He doesn’t really like reading. Can you recommend something?”Not everyone comes right out and asks me for a “boy book,” but often the expectation is there. And more often than I’d like to, I wind up handing out the usual suspects: the Percy Jackson books, the Maze Runner series. Michael Vey and Escape from Furnace and Alex Rider.
