The Book on Boys

Bellringers acknowledges her status as a VIB (very important blogger) and accepts a marketer's offer to review Peg Tyre's book The Trouble With Boys. Then she discovers it's a darn good book:

Now I really only intended to read just a few pages. Instead, I rather surprised myself and kept turning the pages. I’m more than half way through and highly recommend it. (And, I’m not just saying that because the book was free.)
But what this book does is make you think about all the things (yep, those things again) we do to kids--intentionally and unintentionally--and to boys specifically. And those things aren’t good things either.

If you're interested in this topic, by the way, we recently ran a Q&A with Tyre. She has told us that she's gotten a strong response to the book from teachers--so much so that she wanted to get more feedback here.
