"It's Storytime!" | Book Recommendations for Boys

For as long as I can remember, I've been a lover of words.

I like to roll them around in my mouth to savor the way they sound - especially ones like "cobblestone" and "babushka"...
I get giddy when they fit just perfectly into a song lyric I've been working on...
I studied how to use them most effectively as a Communications major in college...
I adopted the words of others as a ghostwriter for two years...

But, one of my absolute favorite places for words is in children's literature.  Growing up, I'm pretty sure my mom's library card was constantly maxed out because of me!  She introduced me to some of the best pieces of literature available and instilled in my heart a love for a well-crafted story and a beautifully illustrated page.  And she's still at it...as a children's librarian she brings home new treasures in the form of pages almost every week for my little guy and he's already caught the reading bug!

Recently, I was asked to consider coordinating a monthly feature for TheMOBSociety website centered on books for boys!  It took me all of about 3 seconds to respond with "Yes, sign me up!"  I had so much fun compiling the list for this first month's edition and it's live today!  I have carefully selected two books per age category (baby/toddler, preschool/early elementary, elementary, tween, teen, and mama) and hope you'll click over to TheMOBSociety to read the details!



As I continue to gather resources and titles for future editions of Books for Boys, I'd love to hear your suggestions!  Leave a comment here or at TheMOBSociety post or shoot me an email at alle(at)chasing-eden(dot)com to send over your recommendations!
