Appropriate Childrens Book For Boys

By Enid Hinton

It can be quite a challenge for educators and parents to search out and find reading material that is both age appropriate and interesting to a child. When it comes to the young, especially those in elementary and preschool who are still developing their attention spans, subject matter might be a major factor. Luckily, there are boundless options available when selecting a childrens book for boys.

Males of a young age have certain subjects that they tend to find more appealing than others. These topics generally include things such as cars, trucks, airplanes, trains, construction vehicles, sports, knights and dragons, superheroes, monsters and outer space, as an example. These are by no means the only themes available and they might also be just as exciting for little girls.

Understanding what things interests the children is the first step to choosing material successfully. This is important in order to keep their focus, pique their curiosity and ignite a spark that makes them want to read more. For kids, making learning a fun experience is a much more effective tactic than trying to force them to listen to something they find boring.

Even though it is important to choose topics that will keep the child interested, one must also take care not to allow them to become so fixated on one thing that they fail to explore other themes. Try to introduce a new subject after a few stories and be excited about them. This helps instill a love of learning and discovery for both reading and life.

At each reading level, the options and styles presented should be geared toward a particular ability or age. As an example, when the children are still young enough that they need someone to read for them, books with pictures that are colorful, bold and illustrate the story are recommended. A lot of titles on this tier have cute drawings are may be based on popular fictional characters and preschool television.

As they begin to read more for themselves, the illustrations tend to take on a simpler form so that the focus is more on the words. The stories generally consist of two or three short sentences per page, made up of just a few words that rhyme and are easy to sound out. This switch helps the child concentrate on understanding how the sounds come together to explain the pictures.

After they have developed the skills to read on their own, it helps to have stories that revolve around topics and characters that spark their interests. Many young males will gravitate towards almost any story based on subjects such as animals, construction, superheroes or their favorite type of vehicles. These themes are usually filled with adventure and action which appeal to the young male mind.

It is a common tendency of many young readers to become fixated on a particular subject or character and only show an interest in titles bases on those. To accommodate this, publishers acknowledge this pattern and will generate several books or an entire series revolving around the same characters in order to keep the children reading. With such an amazing range of tales and styles, it is increasingly easy to find something that appeals to every child.
