LOOK NO FURTHER FOR GUIDANCE ON THE BEST BOOKS FOR BOYS
There's no shortage of research that suggests that boys don't read as much as girls and if our email requests from members and browsers is anything to go by a list of books that are 'Great for Boys', is long overdue. So right here on Lovereading4kids our aim is to redress that balance.
We’ve created a special category of books, broken down by age range, which our experts think will be enjoyed enormously by boys.
It might be purely because there’s plenty of exciting action and fast-moving plots in the story and that the book will grab the reader’s attention before they’ve even finished the first page or perhaps the characters in the story are mostly boys.
Please don’t think however, that we’re excluding girls from having an interest in these books. We know there are plenty of girls who also enjoy books that are more aimed at boys.
We hope parents will find it a useful resource. As always you can download free Opening Extracts of each book and buy with a 25% discount, and do come back often as we will be refreshing the list regularly.
