My colleague Rachel informed me about a great website dedicated to boys and literacy. The website, called Boys Read, is a great resource full of articles, book recommendations, learning practices, etc. The mission of the organization is to engage boys in reading and to help them begin the journey of turning into lifelong readers. With content and contributions from parents, eduators, librarians, mentors, authors, and booksellers, the Boys Read website is an essential resource for everyone working with young boys and teenage boys. I also added a link to the website in our links list.
