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 –, 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 :-)
