A patron came in this morning looking for holiday book suggestions for 4 grandsons ages 8-13. While helping her I was reminded of an excellent website designed specifically for finding books for boys. The website Guys Read (clickable link) is the brainchild of Jon Scieszka, author of dozens of picture books including "The Stinky Cheese Man", as well as plenty of juvenile fiction such as the Time Warp Trio series.
The mission of Guys Read is "to motivate boys to read by connecting them with materials they will want to read, in ways they like to read". What a great mission! And what a great website. Books are reviewed, discussed, and listed in genres such a funny books, books about outer space, books about building stuff...and more.
