Because It's "Just For Them."
Great Battles for Boys is military history for boys — especially boys who hate to read.
Conversational— not a text book!
The non-stop action from the battlefields of history makes reading feel as thrilling as any video game.
“I am 8 years old and I love this series. I've been using some of battle strategies that you talk about in the books against my mom in Laser Tag!"
Military history also gives boys authentic examples of leadership, strategic thinking, engineering marvels, worldwide politics, shifting geographies….
Boys DEVOUR these books!
“It felt like a chore to get my son to read. Now that he’s discovered military history and your series, he reads for 45 minutes stretches at a time!”
READING is ESSENTIAL for your son's academic success.
Boys need to read. And they need to be confident readers by 4th or 5th grade. If they're still struggling with reading in middle school, they will find academics VERY challenging.
Even worse? Struggling readers are statistically more likely to drop out of high school.
But today's boys are falling behind girls in reading — at every grade level.
In every state across America!
That's a CRISIS.
Boys are also inundated with distractions – video games, smart phones, television, social media...
But YOU can improve YOUR son's reading skills RIGHT NOW.
Give him these unforgettable tales of brave men fighting on the front lines of history. Alexander the Great. William Wallace. George Washington. Teddy Roosevelt. General Patton. Chesty Puller...
How do I know these books work?
Because I wrote them for my own son who hated to read!
As a teacher with a passion for military history, I didn't want my son to grow up thinking books were boring. I can honestly say that these Great Battles for Boys books changed my son from a reluctant reader into an eager reader.
Now YOU can do the same for YOUR son.
If you have any questions, please drop me a line. I really enjoy hearing from you.
Until then, see you on the battlefield of the mind!
