In Get Those Guys Reading : Fiction and Series Books that Boys Will Love, authors Kathleen A. Baxter and Marcia A. Kochel provide compelling and current reading suggestions for younger boys--information that educators, librarians, and parents alike are desperate for.

Comprising titles that are almost all well-reviewed in at least one major professional journal, or that are such big hits with kids that they've received the "stamp of approval" from the most important reviewers, this book will be invaluable to anyone whose goal is to help boys develop a healthy enthusiasm for reading. It includes chapters on adventure books; animal stories; graphic novels; historical fiction; humorous books; mystery, horror, and suspense titles; science fiction and fantasy; and sports novels. Within each chapter, the selections are further divided into books for younger readers (grades 3-6) and titles for older boys in grades 5-8. Elementary and middle school librarians and teachers, public librarians, Title One teachers, and parents of boys in grades 3-9 will all benefit greatly from having this book at hand.
