Here it is! The boys top ten books that we read in 2013. Since we started our homeschooling for the year in July we have read over 80 books together. Now this doesn’t count the fun books that they pick out. The reading at the library or even bedtime stories. The 80 books that we counted all had to do with  books that we choose as part of our studies, or read aloud. I hope you have time to read these with your children.

 10 Top Books for Boys, Perfect for early elementary age children and older. Fiction and Non fiction books for kids. You don't want to miss these books.

Great Books for Boys

Magic Treehouse
The magic tree house series is definitely a favorite at our house. Pair it with the resource books and you are set for a unit study. I realize I didn’t pick just one, that’s because we’ve read so many and have truly enjoyed them all.

Mr. Poppers Penguins
Mr. Poppers Penguins, a true classic. We added in Confessions of a homeschooler literature lapbook and really enjoyed it. After finishing the book we had a movie day.

The Boxcar Children

The Boxcar Children

These books will keep you wanting to read more. They are fun and exciting. Perfect for kids that love adventure.



 Frindle is just a fun read by a great Author (Andrew Clements). The book is about a young boy in 4-5th grade that decides to make a word up to annoy his teacher. The thing is the word becomes so popular it truly changes the boys, the schools, and the teachers life. That’s all I’m going to say because I don’t want to give away too much. The kids really got a kick out of this book, I highly recommend it.

 Roald Dahl Books

Roald Dahl

You can never go wrong with Roald Dahl, his stories bring you into his world and make you feel like you are there. He captures your imagination and keeps the kids talking about the characters far after you have finished the book.

 Three Tales of My Father’s Dragon 

My Father's Dragon

My Father’s Dragon takes you on an adventure with a young boy (Elmer Elevator) traveling to a far off land to save a baby dragon. My boys loved looking at the maps that were included while charting Elmer’s adventure. He runs into all kinds of ferocious animals and out smarts them all.

 Maps and Mapping

Maps and Mapping

Maps and Mapping was a fun book and very informative. We used this book during the time we were reading My Father’s Dragon. It taught us all about the different types of maps in the world and the Cartographer that makes them.  



Lentil, Who doesn’t love a book about an awkward boy who becomes the town hero? We love stories like these, and this book had us breaking out our harmonica’s and giving it a try.

 So You Want to Be President

 president Book

Do you want to help your kids learn the presidents while also learning amazing and sometimes funny facts about them. Like who needed a special bathtub in the white house because he was so big. What some of their hobbies were and what college you might want to choose. So you want to be president is definitely a keeper.

 The Boy Who Drew Birds

 Audobon Bird Books

This year we have done an extensive nature study. So I felt one of the best naturalists to learn about would be John James Audubon. Actually, Blaze reminds me a lot of Audubon in his earlier years. We read several Audubon books during the year, however this one really stood out. The pictures are as delightful as the story.


These were the boys favorite books from this past school year. The average age range for this book list would be 5-10 years old. I hope you have the chance to enjoy some of these with your children *Side note: I don’t really think any book is just for boys, however this is a list that my boys picked out that they enjoyed the most.
