Best Books for Boys

September 10, 2009 by Terri Leave a reply »

My friend, Heather, who writes The Homeschooler’s Notebook (an excellent newsletter that you can sign up for here – http://www.familyclassroom.net), brought to my attention the blog post of another dear friend, Ann Voskamp, author of A Holy Experience blog and A Child’s Geography series, which we have the privilege to publish.

Heather wrote this in her newsletter this morning (there’s a link in her comments to Ann’s blog):

‘Books for Boys’ (by a boy) and a Mom’s Observations

The following blog post was written by a thoughtful and loving mother about the list of books her son chose base on what he believes every young man simply *must* read.

I know this is just one boy’s list, but it is more of a reflection on a life.  The author has set the blog to beautiful music, which is well worth hearing as you read the post (unless you REALLY don’t like crying while reading… LOL)  Disclaimer:  This is entirely not intended to be an informational recommendation — it is just a really great experience to enjoy.  There are some good books on the actual list — don’t get me wrong — but it is more about the mom’s reflections on her son’s life than the list itself.  Make a cup of tea (if that is your way to relax), go to a quiet place — or just shut the door — and read slowly.  It is really worth it. — Heather :-)
