I teach first and second grade students, ages 6-8 years old, in the Title 1 reading program. My students struggle with learning how to efficiently apply reading strategies and comprehend. Many, especially the boys, do not enjoy reading. 45-75% (depending on the year) of my students are male. The vast majority of the books in my guided reading library is fiction. Before I can effectively teach them reading strategies, I need books that appeal to the boys, books the boys cannot wait to get their hands on. We live in a small rural community. 47% of the student population is on free and reduced lunches.
