A while back I posted about a book I had read, Why Boys Fail and the falling literacy of boys everywhere. The author went on to cite the lack of books interesting to boys as part of the problem.
Lack of boy friendly books has definitely been a problem with Yip and Yap. A couple years ago we stumbled upon Buck Wilder books and the boys love them! Buck Wilder is a friendly woodsman who lives with a pet racoon in a tree house. He spends his days searching for clues and has adventures to solve animal problems in the woods. Some of his adventures include Who Stole the Animal Poop? and The Ants Dig to China. Buck Wilder explains the behaviors of animals and the balance of nature in humorous ways.
I know we have more Buck Wilder books around here somewhere other than just these three but of course the boys have them stashed somewhere.
Can't you imagine every little boy wanting to read a book about poop?
