The Art of Manliness recently posted a list of 50 Best Books for Boys and Young Men that you may want to check out if you’re looking for good books for boys. The website in general is intriguing, and you may find yourself spending a few minutes looking around at other things it has to offer once you’ve finished checking out the book recommendations. I found it to be both funny and informative. Here’s the description from the site:
“The Art of Manliness is authored by husband and wife team, Brett and Kate McKay. It features articles on helping men be better husbands, better fathers, and better men. In our search to uncover the lost art of manliness, we’ll look to the past to find examples of manliness in action. We’ll analyze the lives of great men who knew what it meant to “man up” and hopefully learn from them. And we’ll talk about the skills, manners, and principles that every man should know. Since beginning in January 2008, The Art of Manliness has already gained 53,000+ subscribers and continues to grow each week.”
Of course not all the books are limited to boys. I really want to read The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. And books I loved when I was growing up and still do are Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, Holes by Louis Sachar, and Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. I adored Trumpet of the Swan by E. B. White, and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is one of my all time favorites. My daughter, Catherine, would appreciate The Indispensable Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson. Check out the whole list to find your new or old favorites.
