It's no secret that reading doesn't always rank high on every boy's list of favorite things. It can be challenging just to get some guys to pick up a book for school, let along fun. What's encouraging is that there are an increasing number of people like you—parents, teachers, librarians, booksellers, caregivers, and other awesome adult role models—who are committed to getting boys excited about reading. This site is designed to be a resource for you to find books and other materials—for all ages and about all subjects—for all the boys you know.

Penguin has always strived to create books that will engage readers, and this website provides a home for tried-and-true favorites as well as brand-new suggestions specifically for boys. Check out our Home Page. From there, you can find books categorized by age and grade level, by author, by series (get them once, then keep 'em hooked!) and by theme—which is particularly helpful for finding title suggestions based on subjects the boy in your life is already interested in. Teachers, if you're looking to round out classroom units and lesson plans or to jumpstart a certain reluctant reader in your classroom, look no further than our For Teachers page. Parents, we know you're hard at work encouraging your boys to read on their own time so be sure to visit our For Parents section where we include the top suggestions for every grade. If you're looking to supplement reading assignments (whether for pleasure or homework), check out the Printables section. We've given you everything from discussion guides to lesson plans to fun printable activity sheets that work just as well for the classroom as for long car trips or summer vacation.
