Description: From School Library Journal
One of the things that many boys give up on their way to manhood is a love of reading," states Odean in her introduction. This thoughtfully compiled annotated bibliography gives parents, teachers, and librarians strategies to help prevent this loss. Titles are organized by reader age and genre. Each entry provides a bibliographic citation, suggested age range, and brief annotation. Readers of Odean's Great Books for Girls (Ballantine, 1997) will note that a different sociological agenda underlies Great Books for Boys. While the former focused exclusively on titles with assertive, active female characters, this one includes those with strong protagonists of both sexes, as well as nonfiction. Odean urges adults to provide boys with literature that reflects the widest possible range of emotions and experiences, from swashbuckling adventure to peaceful daydreaming. A list of magazines for young readers acknowledges the importance of nonbook reading material. Graphic novels and comic books are not included. An excellent resource.AConstance Vidor, The Cathedral School of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, New York City

Product Description:

Parents, grandparents, teachers, and librarians--we need a tool that guides us to the books that will inspire boys to read and keep them coming back for more. Now Kathleen Odean, a former member of the Caldecott and Newbery Award committees and author of the groundbreaking bestseller Great Books for Girls has compiled and annotated a unique collection of more than six hundred books--picture books, novels, mysteries, biographies, sports books, and more--that will fascinate and educate boys. Here are classic characters such as Frog and Toad, Bilbo Baggins, and Encyclopedia Brown; new favorites such as Bingo Brown, Martin the Warrior, and Harry the Dirty Dog; and real-life inspirations such as the Wright brothers, Jackie Robinson, and Jacques Cousteau.

The boys who discover reading from the books in this invaluable volume will witness a wide range of role models--and embark upon an adventure that will fuel their dreams for the rest of their lives.
