Read It Each and every year, I present a lesson on "Just Right Books." Each and every year, I feel that it falls just a little bit flat.

40+ Best Books for Boys Ages 8-14 40+ of the absolute BEST books for boys in their pre-tween, tween and teenage years. Let me start by saying that my now-teenage boys are not avid bookworms. They’re decent readers, but my sons don’t just hunker down with a book whenever they’re bored.
