From the Publisher"Highly recommended for its wealth of practical strategies and its comprehensive annotated bibliographies."
"All children need good literacy skills, but helping boys to become enthusiastic readers requires a specialized approach. Educators Elizabeth Knowles and Martha Smith explore the facts and research on this topic in Boys and Literacy: Practical Strategies for Librarians, Teachers, and Parents. They address classroom changes and focus on genres of particular interest to boys—humor, adventure, fantasy/science fiction, horror/mystery, war, and graphic novels—and also include annotations and reading levels for the recommended titles."
