SquirrellyMama Posted July 31, 2012 Share Posted July 31, 2012 My 9 yr old ds hates to read good books. He reads Garfield comic books, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Hank the Cow dog. I'm not opposed to any of those books but I don't want them to make up a large portion of his reading diet. Up until last year we had the hardest time with phonics and reading so I'm super happy that he is reading well now. He doesn't like long books but that doesn't surprise me. He is a 9 yr old boy with a short attention span. I've been having him read some abridged classics this summer and so far he's finished Treasure Island, Ivanhoe and Journey to the Center of the Earth. He hated them and balks at any reading material I give him. Are there any good, funny books for boys out there? He loves humor in any form. I suppose I understand because I don't like to read depressing books or go to movies that make me cry. What is out there for him? Any authors I should look at? I know I can Google this but I thought I could get some good recommendations here. Kelly Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
