Welcome to Guys Read, a web-based literacy program for boys founded by author and First National Ambassador of Young People’s Literature Jon Scieszka.. Our mission is to help boys become self-motivated, lifelong readers.
Research shows that boys are having trouble reading, and that boys are getting worse at reading. No one is quite sure why. Some of the reasons are biological. Some of the reasons are sociological.
But the good news is that research also shows that boys will read — if they are given reading that interests them.
So the biggest part of this site is the collection of book titles below. These are books that guys have told us they like.
Our idea is to help guys become readers by helping them find texts they want to read.
Get in there and start looking around. There is a little something for everyone.
And please help guys out by recommending more of your guy-favorites.
