If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that one blog in my RSS feed is written by Lisa Belkin. Belkin’s blog, Parentlode (opens in a new window), can be found in the Huffington Post (opens in a new window). Many of Belkin’s posts speak to me on a personal level, and some circle into my professional life as well.

This week, Belkin bantered with Pam Allyn, author of Pam Allyn’s Best Books for Boys (opens in a new window) on the topic of giving boys a love of reading (opens in a new window).

If you have boys, or have boys in your classroom, I recommend reading this post. In it you’ll learn about an acronym READ (ritual, environment, access, and dialogue), ways to make reading part of the active lifestyle boys tend to lead, and a slideshow of humorous books boys might like. Enjoy!
