Emerging Readers for Boys

As you know if you've been reading my Blog for a while Bugsy's reading is starting to take off.  He is reading with me daily and wanting to read for himself.  So far i've not been able to find anything to captivate him at the library so i went looking online and spoke to a few friends and here is what i have to recommend as emerging readers for boys.

Yes, OK, i freely admit some are 'fluff' books, but sometimes you need a bit of 'fluff' before you can grasp the thread to make something beautiful :-)  If you look at our booklists school is full of living books.  As i use a book basket approach to our literature and history reading it is imperative that the children want to read for themselves.  Some 'fluff' will light a fire in his belly and the feast that i have to offer is quality :-)  Well, that's the plan {wink}.

  1. Some favourite there; The Littles and Frog and Toad. and I do agree with you, sometimes we have to use twaddle to get reading off to a start.
