||Great Books for Boys
||One of the things many boys give up on their way to manhood is a love of reading. This thoughtfully compiled annotated bibliography gives parents, teachers, and librarians strategies to help prevent this. Titles are organized by reader age and genre. Each entry provides a bibliographic citation, suggested age range, and brief annotation. Odean urges adults to provide boys with literature that reflects the widest possible range of emotions and experiences, from swashbuckling adventure to peaceful daydreaming. A list of magazines for young readers acknowledges the importance of other reading material.
