Jon Scieszka, author of one of my favorite children’s books of all time, THE STINKY CHEESE MAN AND OTHER FAIRLY STUPID TALES, has initiated a program to help boys develop into readers. Go check out the site, it is pretty cool stuff.
Boys need to read. One of the most shocking discoveries of mine in my years coaching was just how few of my high school boys read on a regular or even a semi-regular basis.
Boys, give reading a try. Find something you like and try reading (or listening). If you don’t like it, toss it aside and try something different, there is plenty out there.
