A few must reads for boys…

Highly recommended for boys of upper elementary and middle school age:

The Bronze Bow, by Elizabeth George Speare – A great extra-biblical account of Jesus’ life, with great truths and emotion.

Mysterious Benedict Society Books, by Trenton Stewart – Imaginative puzzles and mysteries, with deep characters.

Origami Yoda and Darth Vader Books, by Tom Angleberger – Humor in the vein of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, better writing.

Nick McIver Books, by Ted Bell – Perfect adventure story with historical reference point.

Doppleganger Chronicles, by G. P. Taylor – Graphic novel reminiscent of a Narnia story with it’s connection to true TRUTH.

The Wingfeather Saga, by Andrew Peterson – A new kind of Narnia, with boys maturing in their character and fighting for good.

The Chronicles of Egg, by Geoff Rodkey – A gem of a series that redeemedreader.com pointed me to. A captivating read with just the right amount of war, love, and mystery.

As a follower of Christ, I feel good in recommending these books to impressionable young boys. They lack the amoral tone and disrespectful message of many books for boys that are available and popular these days.
