Boys sometimes have a harder time getting interested in books. One way to solve that is to start a book club for boys only. Laura Blum, mother of 4 and reading advocate, discusses how she turned her reluctant readers into great readers and how you can too!

UPDATE: Nancy’s son and his friends met for the first Boys Only Book Club and about 50% of the kids showed up, but they had fun and Barnes and Noble was very accommodating to help them choose books. They chose Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians. They will be meeting every 3 weeks over the summer to get them interested in reading. They also joined the Barnes and Noble reading plan, the Borders reading plan and a local library reading plan that all give freebies to kids who read.
