    Review quote
    "Highly recommended for its wealth of practical strategies and its comprehensive annotated bibliographies." - Education Libraries "All children need good literacy skills, but helping boys to become enthusiastic readers requires a specialized approach. Educators Elizabeth Knowles and Martha Smith explore the facts and research on this topic in Boys and Literacy: Practical Strategies for Librarians, Teachers, and Parents. They address classroom changes and focus on genres of particular interest to boys--humor, adventure, fantasy/science fiction, horror/mystery, war, and graphic novels--and also include annotations and reading levels for the recommended titles." - Reference & Research Book News "[A] useful tool for teachers, librarians or parents looking for additional lists of books that will interest boys." - American Libraries "This carefully organized guide is designed to encourage boys to become better and more enthusiastic readers...Writing, discussion, art, and performance connections to reading are described as important tools for keeping boys interested and engaged at home, in the library, and at school. The predominant content is a selection of well-balanced extensive annotated reading lists and bibliographies on topics of interest to boys from elementary school through high school." - VOYA
