Another great professional book to add to your summer reading is PAM ALLYN'S BEST BOOKS FOR BOYS: HOW TO ENGAGE BOYS IN READING IN WAYS THAT WILL CHANGE THEIR LIVES. This book is packed with great titles and information on helping boys engage in books, to become part of the culture of literacy. Pam Allyn is so knowledgeable when it comes to books and boys that she is a perfect person to write a book on this topic. I learned about her commitment to boys and literacy years ago when I read about her Books for Boys program at the Children's Village. I was thrilled to see that she brought her understanding about how to connect boys and books to this new resource for teachers and parents. This is a must-have resource for anyone interested in connecting boys to books.
