This was something I hadn't really considered before - luckily I had done some research before my interview, trying to anticipate the kind of questions I would be asked.
Some of the books that are classed as 'boys' didnt really come to mind at first as my oldest daughter *asacheekymonkey* reads this classification as well as more 'girlie' books.
These are a few that came to mind:
The Goosebumps Series - that asacheekymonkey is addicted too : D
The Alex Rider Series by Anthony Horowitz (my hubs has read these)
The Young James Bond by Charlie Higson
Along with graphic novels, anime and manga.
I also discovered the School Library Association website that has loads of really useful information.
I know a few families that have boys, some are voracious readers yet others have to be bribed in order to read a book. Surely this cant just be gender specific, or is it just a statistic that girls read more than boys.
If anyone knows of any initiatives to encourage reading (whether it is boys or girls) I would be extremely grateful.
If you have any suggestions/advice/links please comment.
Thanks for all your support : D
