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!
