Parents and educators alike will tell you that love of reading (sadly) doesn’t always come naturally to boys. As a story in Washingtonpost.com (1/25/05) put it, “girls read, boys don’t.” Is there anything a concerned adult can do? Ann Cannon’s experiences as a teacher of children’s literature, a bookseller, a writer, and a mother of five sons have convinced her that the answer is yes. She’ll discuss strategies and specific titles that have been successful with real live boys.
