About Home Schooling...
Home schooling parents need to know about Frost Hollow Publisher¡¯s
Books for Boys, if only because they too have to deal with boys who
don¡¯t want to read. Frost Hollow has the answer, 14 novels, all
stand-alone stories aimed directly at boys age 10 to 15 and even older.
These superbly written stories are designed to appeal to boys by using
action, mystery, suspense, sports, and adventure to get and hold the
reader¡¯s attention. They keep boys entertained and provide a relief
from purely academic reading while stressing through the actions of the
characters, high ethics and morality and getting boys used to that
notion that you only get what you earn, and that it takes hard work to
succeed at anything. The books are also funny because a sense of humor
is, after all, a good part of what gets us through life.
About Middle School Readers...
Middle school boys don¡¯t have much to read that they find interesting,
simply because there¡¯s isn¡¯t much out there aimed at them. Ask any
middle school librarian. But Frost Hollow Publishers has 14 novels
they¡¯re going to like, 14 wonderful novels packed with sports,
suspense, mystery, and adventure. None of the books are sequels. Each
is set in a different place with different characters. They also stress
high ethics and morals, and proceed from a belief that you get what
earn. But the real benefit is that boys WILL read and enjoy these
books. Soon enough they discover that reading is a form of
entertainment. They even get to laugh. What¡¯s more, boys will talk
about these novels among themselves, and such a thing has hardly ever
been heard of these days. And we know that happens because the
librarians have told us they have overheard such discussions. They also
smile more these days because now when a boy comes into the library
they have something to offer him.
About Reluctant Readers...
A reluctant reader is the bane of any mother¡¯s existence and the
frustration only mounts with each passing month. Most often that
reluctant reader is a middle school aged boy. He typically is into
sports and video games and regards reading as something for nerds and
girls. But once he gets hold of our Books for Boys, that reluctant,
middle school reader undergoes a transformation. Not only will he
devour one book after another, but he will reread the books over and
over. The reason is that these novels are aimed at boys. They are
packed with mystery, adventure, sports, and suspense. The books stress
ethics, high morality, and the fight against injustice. It also means,
Mom, that the battles over having to get a certain number of books read
over the summer or the struggle over book reports are at an end. What
could be better than that?
