"Don't be afraid to try something new. Have a little fun. Be creative. Dream," encourage Phillip and Andrew, twelve-year-old contributors to Boys Know It All
. Stereotypes and the pressure to conform often smother the creativity of boys and leave their fresh, original ideas unheard. But in Boys Know It All
, boys ages six to sixteen feel free to offer helpful hints for tough situations, like talking to girls and surviving older siblings, while others toss out ways to fill free time creatively, like inventing family traditions and taking care of pets. This is a fun book that also tackles serious issues about growing up male in the United States. Boys will enjoy reading it and will even get excited about learning and trying new things.
