First, let me begin by saying as a former educator, I LOVE BOOKS!


My two sons get a book each night and they both have come to love reading.Now this blog  is not to alienate those mothers that have daughters, but so much nowadays is catered to young girls. And I sometimes find it hard, when purchasing books, to really find some that cater to young boys- especially that young Black and Hispanic boys can relate to. But, here's a few you might find your son(s) loving!
