Attracting boys to library programs in the "tween" years will maintain their interest in books and reading over a lifetime, creating good health habits from a young age. Sullivan's practical and proven programming builds on the unique developmental needs and interests of boys in this middle stage. From playing chess to swathing the walls in butcher paper to give boys a physical space to respond to books, Sullivan's practical ideas and developmentally astute insights show librarian and teacher colleagues how to make vitally needed connections with this underserved population."@en ;
