Review:

''If you are a teacher, and you have been struggling to connect your boys with reading, this book is for you. Debby Zambo and Bill Brozo bring their many years of kid and classroom experience to the complicated problem of boys' literacy. Bright Beginnings clearly describes where we are. It explores the physical, social, and cognitive roots of the challenge. And then it offers strategies to inspire male readers in the classroom, at home, and in the wider community. The subtitle says it all - engaging young boys in active literacy. This is our challenge for the 21st century.'' --Jon Scieszka, award-winning author and creator of GuysRead.com
