My oldest son loves reading. At least, now he does. As a woman in her 30’s, I struggled to find good books for boys his age because, apparently, I don’t really “get” 9-year-old dudes. Go figure. It took a lot of trial and error, but we eventually procured a collection that he loves. I can’t even remember the last time he whined about reading. In my opinion, that means these are some darn good books for boys.
These are easy to read, highly entertaining graphic novels. I credit this series for igniting my son’s love of reading because the books are not too challenging, but still have a well-developed story that is really fun for kids.
Side note: Having a tough time getting your boy to spend time reading? Have him earn TV/game time with reading minutes. My son has to read for 20 minutes before each 30 minute TV or gaming session. Works like a charm!
All it takes is one darn good book to inspire a lifetime love of reading. Try these titles and let me know how it goes!
