Great Books for Boys!

There’s no shortage of research that suggests that boys don’t read as much as girls.  Love Reading 4kids have created a special category of books, broken down by age range, which their experts think will be enjoyed enormously by boys. It might be purely because theres plenty of exciting action and fast-moving plots in the story and that the book will grab the readers attention before theyve even finished the first page or perhaps the characters in the story are mostly boys.
