Jon Scieszka, author of children's books such as The Stinky Cheese Man and the Time Warp Trio series, created a website called Guys Read, which takes a look at the growing literacy problems among boys in the United States and other developed countries and offers some ideas and tips on encouraging young boys to read.

On Guys Read, you will find a list of some of the top picks for books for boys, including titles in categories such as, RobotsAction/AdventureWar and books with At Least One Explosion – you know, the things boys like to read about.

There are also cool, downloadable bookmarks and bookplates!

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s blog post which will discuss more deeply the literacy problem among boys that we are facing today.
