I gave it to my boyfriend and told him this is the book he can read to our son!
Maria E. Martinez
Adults should enjoy this book just for remembering what it was like growing up - and kids should like this book because it was written by one their peers.
Lessandra Lee
A tip like, "To get a girl to like you, talk to her and get to know her" is great advice, why couldn't the book have more of this kind of straight talk?

I am a middle school, high school teacher. I have read this book to several classes, and they love it. It is a jumping off point for their own feelings and makes a great writing assignment for them as well.
It's rare when kids ask you to read a book to them over and over.

I thought this was a very clever book. It tells boys how to talk and act around girls without a lot of big words and explanation. I know as a parent, when my son asks me questions, I tend to go overboard and overexplain. I worry that he won't get it. But perhaps I need to learn from this 9 year old author and just keep it simple.

I gave this to a guy in my youth group as a gag-gift, because he tends to be rude with a lot of the girls. It was a huge hit, everyone including himself laughed when they saw it, and he immediately opened it and began using it on his girl friend.

I taught fourth grade and the boys in the class read this book non-stop. One or two parents got all offended, came in all mad because they heard about "some book". When they actually read it they calmed down. The girls would read it and say, "yeah". The boys would read it and go, "oh, now I get it".

Greven, Alec. How to Talk to Girls. Illustrations by Kei Acedera. Collins. 2008.

Even if this book is intended to be funny, it is not because it perpetuates stereotypical ideas, "girls win most of the arguments and have most of the power" and "It is easy to spot pretty girls because they have the big earrings, fancy dresses, and all the jewelry." The follow-up statement, "the best choice for most boys is a regular girl" is unfortunate: the implication that a regular girl is not pretty, or a pretty girl is not regular is not a healthy one for young children to read. A tip like, "To get a girl to like you, talk to her and get to know her" is great advice, why couldn't the book have more of this kind of straight talk? Instead more unfortunate comments follow: "If the girl you like is wild, then act just like her. This is hardly good advice. "It is also good to give gifts" is counsel that supports our already over materialistic culture. This silly book written by a nine year old boy is exploitative as is all the hoopla from the media.

Well, I bought this book for my son who is 10. he red it in an hour. He turned to me and said what I have always said to him about how to get to girl is true. It's a cute way of saying things that we Mom's always try to tell our boys. This book is recommended for boys age 7 to 12. It helps them to see painful experience with little girls in a funny way and know that it is the same for all and of course there is a per for every single one of them.
