I’m going to tell you guys something right now, and I want ya’ll to hear me. There is a major, major, major, lack of good, quality literature for elementary school age books for boys. In fact, maybe I’ll write a series for that age. I thought it would be nice to share a couple suggestions here for you guys, because I know I’m always on the prowl for some quality books, I had to share this one with you guys!

The Adventures of Rockford T. Honeypot— this is the sweetest little chapter book. Perfect for a read aloud as a family. It’s an empowering book for boys, fueling their imaginations through stories of truly, epic adventures. I actually really enjoyed it too, which is always a plus. My boys are a fun age, where we can divide up the reading responsibilities.

A little about the author:
“Los Angeles native Josh Gottsegen has a background in filmmaking and digital media and is the author of “Joosh’s Juice Bar,” an early elementary school children’s book series that encourages healthy eating habits through vivid illustrations and Dr. Seussian-style rhymes. Earning his BA in Film Studies at the University of California Santa Barbara, Gottsegen has won numerous awards for his short films and video productions. Starting professionally at NBCUniversal Interactive, later Josh Gottsegen moved into editing as well as other creative projects for the Walt Disney Company, Fox Corporation, IMG, and the NFL.”
