I wanted to help spread the word about this challenge, which is hosted by Logan E. Turner and The Unread Reader. I was just talking to my friend today. She is a 5th grade teacher and she was telling me how difficult it is to get her boys to read. They don’t have the patience for books. She wants them to graduate beyond Captain Underpants, but she is having a hard time finding books that have that “boy appeal” that will keep them engaged in a book. It’s not enough for the protagonist to be a boy, the book also has to be compelling enough to get these young readers interested enough to keep turning the pages. I am going to participate in this challenge, and hopefully I can discover some books to send her way. Middle Grade books are a little too hard for most of her students, but I am more than willing to dive into some chapter books to find some titles for her. If you have any recommendations for 7 – 8 year olds, please share in the comments.
