Best Books For Boys Linky!


I am soooo excited!  Courtney, over at Swimming Into Second, is having a linky that I totally can relate to!  Showcasing books that boys like!  I know I have now written 3 sentences that end with exclamation points, but I cannot help myself.  Boys make up a big percentage of my Title 1 reading classes and of course books are what I love!!  

I have found over the years that boys love books.  We just need to find the ones that fit them, which means different books fit different boys.  But there are lots of books out there that most boys will like.  Here are a few of the books that I have found that boys will look at and read over and over.



My younger students love all of the Fly Guy books.  What is it about this fly that they like so much?  Who knew a fly could be so funny and interesting!

My own boys loved, loved science experiment books.  I cannot tell you the number of times we were in the kitchen concocting some kind of recipe or experiment!  So much fun and memories from doing that- and maybe a little bit of a mess.  But that's okay!

Joke books have been another favorite of my boys. Anything silly that they can get a laugh out of is good!

Now, I know that Captain Underpants may not be considered excellent literature, but boys don't care (girls too).  They love the silly antics that go on these books and they totally get the humor (even if we sometimes rather that they didn't)!

I have also found that boys love to read informational books, especially about animals.  Sometimes the scarier the animal, the better!

I hope you enjoyed this list of books for boys.  I have found that anything silly, slimy, or scary will usually work to grab their attention!!  But really, and especially when they are young, if we are excited about books, they will be too!

Now be sure and link up and share your favorite books for boys!

  2. My boys (and girls) also love Fly Guy. They love Mo Willems and No, David books too. I'm sure you do a wonderful job of hooking your boys, partly because you make sure that what you do is meaningful and authentic!

  14. Oh! Your NG Joke book reminded me of the ... what are they. Strange but True books?
    And so right. If it has gross or disgusting or unexplained or terror or "vs" in the title they are usually hooked! ;)

  15. Caitlin, I just had a conversation this week with our librarian about how poplular Fly Guy is! We can't figure why, but they do really like those books. Thank you for the kind words about my blog and for following! I just stopped by your blog and left you a comment. :)

  17. When one of my boys was growing up, all he liked to read were gadgety science books. And now as an adult it's mostly non-fiction!

    I just read your kind comment on my blog about putting my snowmen on TpT. Well, it's so funny that you said that, cause that's what I've been working on the last two days. I just finished putting up some Valentine stuff too. Just keeping my fingers crossed that I did it correctly!

    Take care and Happy New Year, Lori!
