Books for Boys

by Derek Brown – Jan 11

At his blog on children’s literature, Ray Van Neste recently provided an extensive list of books written for boys.  He also lists the titles of several resources that discuss the topic of boys literature and the “importance of reading good stories.”

A colleague recently asked me for some recommendations for books for boys, so I thought I’d post my list and reflections here. Many more no doubt could or should be listed, but below are some books my boys and I have enjoyed. I compiled the list by giving a quick look back over this blog and by asking my sons what they remembered as their favorites. Links take you to discussions of these books on this blog. Typically my thoughts on the age range for the book can be found at the link.

You can read the entire list here.
