  1. >Feel compelled to ask the obvious question: why did you tag this one with “boys reading”?

  2. Roger Sutton says:

    >Because so many of the books on the list are about boys and signal boys as part of their implied audience. As a genre, children’s literature in general has an implied audience of girls, so I feel like it’s worth pointing out when books acknowledge that boys read, too.

    Oh, and the list, too!
