BRIDGING THE GENDER GAP:
ENTICING BOYS TO BOOKS
This list provides a sampling of some of the books that boys may enjoy at various ages. I have
not included all the books in a series nor have I included every book by every author even
though they fit the scope of this bibliography. While some may be out of print, many are already
in library collections; others are brand new. Also remember that some books can fit in several
categories. As always, not every book is appropriate for every library collection or every reader.
Ages and interest levels are not provided. This bibliography is a work in progress; new books
are added and the list refined as time goes by. Please feel free to contact me with suggestions
of books to add – or new titles to replace ones on the list.
