I'm linking up with Courtney over at Swimming into Second and her Best Books for Boys linky.
Here are my favs for boys:
1. Zac Power
Zac Power is a 12 year old who works at G.I.B (Government Investigation Bureau).
I have to say my boys love these books! Do they interest me? Not at all, but the boys go through them like there's no tomorrow! I love that they come at different levels - the Test Drive and Spy Camp series have larger print, lower word-count and simpler stories, there is the regular series and then Mega Missions and Extreme Missions that have a story spanning multiple books. There's something for all levels of readers in my class (and the lower readers feel good that they can read the same books (in their minds) as the higher readers.
2. Boy vs Beast
3. Beast Quest
4. Super Hero books
What boy doesn't love superheroes? I've been ordering these books from the Scholastic catalogues this year and they are a hit! The boys LOVE the comic book feel. They are also very popular with the girls.
6. Anything Non-Fiction
I'm sure your boys are just like mine - their little minds just absorb facts about animals, space, plants, pretty much anything 'science-y'. The trouble is finding non-fiction titles that are at a suitable reading level for all the readers in my class. I've collected a lot of the readers available through Scholastic (e.g. Magic Tree House, Space, Human Body etc), National Geographic and Time for Kids. I also have bought a lot of book sets on different topics (like the one below) but I think many of them will be too hard for my firsties next year, particularly at the start.
Head on over to Swimming into Second to check out other great books for boys.
