9781937589431: Raising Boy Readers

Using stories and anecdotes to humanize the research presented, Raising Boy Readers conveys an understanding of the differences that are common among many boys and how these differences affect reading. It provides practical approaches to promote reading to boys, addressing physical differences, such as the different rates of early brain development between boys and girls; psychological issues, such as the outward focus of boys; and social issues, such as stress and confidence. It also looks at the effects of modern schooling and how these can be counterbalanced or supplemented at home. More than 300 boy-friendly books by age group are recommended, and commentary is provided for selected titles. By informing parents what is behind boys’ reading behaviors, the book helps build confidence and lower stress by also suggesting ways to help boys become lifelong readers.

About the Author:

Michael Sullivan is the author of several books, including Connecting Boys with Books, Connecting Boys with Books 2: Closing the Reading Gap, Fundamentals of Children’s Services, the Escapade Johnson series of children's books, and The Sapphire Knight. A popular speaker on the topics of boys and reading, library administration, and the future of public libraries, he is a former president of the New Hampshire Library Association and was the 1998 New Hampshire Librarian of the Year. He has been awarded the U.S. Conference of Mayors City Livability Award and the Mom’s Choice Award for juvenile fiction. He lives in Collinsville, Oklahoma.

From School Library Journal:

Sullivan, author of Connecting Boys with Books 2 (2009) and Serving Boys through Readers Advisory (2010, both ALA) writes his first work for parents of boys. In a clear, conversational tone, he offers practical and reassuring advice on a range of topics, including how fathers influence what their sons read, what kind of physical environment fosters reading, and why reading large numbers of titles—even below grade level—is essential to making boys lifelong readers. The first half of the book features five chapters, each addressing the "whys" and "hows" of boy readers, concluding with a "big question" that pertains to the central topic. The chapter on "How Boys Read" discusses gender differences, brain science, the importance of reading aloud, ADHD concerns, and encouraging boys' writing. The chapter's "big question" asks if e-readers benefit boys: Sullivan says "yes" and makes a persuasive case. Detailed source notes at the end of each chapter demonstrate the author's thorough research and make information easy to find. The second half of the book is an annotated list of more than 300 titles organized by grade level, elementary through high school. The same list is then reorganized by genre, subject, and grade levels. An index includes all 300 titles in the booklist and is well-organized for quick reference; the bibliography is comprehensive. While Sullivan's stated audience is parents, educators and librarians will also find valuable insights in this volume.—Marybeth Kozikowski, Sachem Public Library, Holbrook, NY
