Good Books For Boys

Monday, June 1, 2009

One of the requests we hear all the time at the library is: Do you have any book recommendations for boys in grades 3-5? Well we have a lot of great suggestions! So, each month we'll post reviews of books that 3-5th grade boys might find fun to read. Here's a few to start with:

The Giggler Treatment by Roddy Doyle

In this funny, very silly, and very gross story author Roddy Doyle proposes that dog poo—a word he deeply enjoys using and describing—lays around for the punishment of adults who are unkind to kids.

The Boy Who Saved Baseball by John Ritter

The fate of a small California town rests on the outcome of one baseball game, and Tom Gallagher hopes to lead his team to victory with the secrets of the now disgraced player, Dante Del Gato.

My Weird School by Dan Gutman

A.J. hates school, but he could never say it’s boring. If you're looking for a hilarious series full of crazy teachers and silly stunts, the My Weird School series may be for you. You'll find yourself wishing that you went to A.J's weird school too!

Ricky Ricotta by Dav Pilkey

Ricky Ricotta and his Mighty Robot face a new adventure in each book of this illustrated series. Packed with action and a quick read, this a series reluctant readers might especially enjoy.
