Tips for Engaging Male Readers

Below are tips from a solid article from Vernon, NJ on how to engage reluctant male readers.

Parents and guardians can encourage boys in their households to read by keeping in mind that:

Most boys love non-fiction.

Most boys love magazines. They’re easy to read and informative.

Encourage online literacy. Monitoring your boy’s reading of tweets, blogs, and other on-line texts not only ensures his online safety but helps the adults in his life to engage and keep connected. Tweets and blogs are short, fun, and topical.

Survey your boy for his personal interests. Pick selections based on those interests.

Males need to have guy role models who like to read.

Graphic novels and comic books count as reading too!
