Editorial Reviews


Readers' Favorite Five Star Review by Ray Simmons
Boys and Books by Hillary Tubin is an important book in what could become a very important series for parents and educators in the United States and eventually the world. Boys and Books addresses a very important issue: aliteracy. Aliteracy is not illiteracy, being unable to read. It is knowing how to read but choosing not to. I have witnessed this strange phenomenon all my life. I say strange because it is strange to me. I love to read. Reading has shaped and defined my life as few other joys, habits or hobbies have. Yet I clearly remember being part of a quiet minority when it came to reading. Most of my friends, even my brother and cousins, did not enjoy reading. Luckily, I was given a social pass because I was athletic and could be a leader when I needed to be. I was never labeled a nerd. I escaped being picked on and bullied. I could even defend some of the boys who had these problems if I happened to be around. 

I wish I had written Boys and Books. This is such a fundamental problem in our schools and society. Maybe that's why I missed it...I suspect that Hillary Tubin will have a profound and positive effect on the lives of countless boys with the publication of this book and this series. She is a teacher so she probably already has. She is observant. She knows boys. She offers excellent suggestions and strategies to parents and everyone else concerned with this problem. And it is a problem. Boys should read. Everyone should read. Let's hope they do. 

About the Author

Hillary Tubin spent 20+ years as a literacy educator trying to figure out how to re-shape reading so 9- to 14-year-old boys would want to read without a fight. Through research, trial and error, and talking to over 350 boys about their reading lives, she finally discovered the secret.
