12 Books My Boys Couldn’t Put Down

One of the luxuries of a childhood summer is having the time to get lost in a book. You know a book is really engrossing when a boy doesn’t come for lunch because he just can’t stop reading. Here is a list of chapter books that All-Star and Feisty couldn’t put down:

The Green Ember
Red Wall
Stout Hearts and Whizzing Biscuits
Brave Buffalo Fighter
Red Falcons of Tremoine
Alvin Fernald, Foreign Trader
Detectives in Togas
On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness
The Perilous Road
The Black Cauldron
The Adventures of Robin Hood
The Winged Watchman

  1. Several of the books you listed are favorites around here, too, especially the Lloyd Alexander series. From a friend’s recommendation, my son recently started the Septimus Heap series (book one is called Magyk), and he really enjoys them.


  2. I can’t even begin to thank you for this resource!!! I”m a homeschool vet of almost 16 years now and was seriously wondering what the heck to do next year as I’m running out of ideas. BUT THIS HAS ME ENERGIZED AND ENCOURAGED!!! The reading list for boys is on a definite TO DO LIST for summer read-alouds with my crew. On behalf of me and all of my fellow Martha’s,
