Make sure to visit A Holy Experience for the rest of the list. I LOVE her style of writing! It's heart warming to say the least!
Just the other day I decided to take all the "boys" books and put them together on shelves. Jon cannot read them yet but when he's ready, they will be there. We've also added in books like....
The Complete Gentleman by Miner
Wild at Heart by Eldredge
Every Young Man's Battle by Stoeker
The Count of Monte Cristo
Stories of King Arthur
Around the World in 80 Days
Book by Chuck Black
I've heard it said over and over that boys don't like to read. Part of me wonders if these boys just haven't had exposure to good books. Exposure to good literature can make all the difference.
So...for now I'll wait. Wait till my son is older to read these fabulous books. Until then, we'll read together The Rumpoles and the Barleys, The Jingle In My Pocket, A Boy To Help, Paddington, The Boy with the Sling and other lovely books.
What a treasure little boys are!
