Kitap Listesi Değerlendirmesi

Sullivan's book focuses on an important and sometimes overlooked area of youth readers'-advisory services, and his knowledge of boy readers comes through clearly in all sections of the book. This short but information-packed guide includes chapters on why boys are different, a definition of boys' lit, the readers'-advisory interview with boys, special circumstances, booktalking for boys of all ages, and indirect readers' advisory. Each of these chapters contains unique materials targeted to male readers, and the information will be useful to all youth- and teen-services librarians. The second half of the book is devoted to fully annotated book lists in a variety of fiction and nonfiction subject areas, with each chapter further subdivided into elementary-school, middle-school, and high-school readers. Essential reading for all librarians interested in providing readers'-advisory services.--Moyer, Jessica Copyright 2010 Booklist

"School Library Journal" İncelemesi

This volume was created to give a general direction when helping most boys select books. The author does give an overview in the first two chapters of why boys read what they do, which can be found in his earlier volumes, Connecting Boys with Books (2003 & 2009, both ALA). But, if you think you didn't need advice on how to do a readers' advisory interview for a boy, think again. Sullivan challenges us to throw out our preconceived notions about how to conduct such an interview. Methods of performing indirect readers' advisory with parents and teachers are included. The excellent booktalks for elementary, middle school, and high school boys alone make this a worthwhile purchase. The author also includes titles to suggest in place of a book a boy did not like or would not read, and a list that will be helpful for those caught in a rut. For example, if you're asked for sports, and your first thought is Matt Christopher, try Mike Lupica. Divided by age group, there are equally great suggestions in each category.-Renee McGrath, Nassau Library System, Uniondale, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
