Featured Website: GUYS READ
Jon Scieszka, author of The Stinky Cheese Man, The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs, and the Time Warp Trio series of books, is the creator of this web resource encouraging boys to read, and adults to help guide the way. Scieszka says, “Our mission is to motivate boys to read by connecting them with materials they will want to read, in ways they like to read.” At http://www.guysread.com/, you’ll find encouragement, reading lists, and help if you’d like to consider starting a book club in your own community. There’s a lot in “Guys Read” for girls to love, too! Check it out.
