Books: Song-filled Books

Here's a "brain-wave" I had the other day for my reluctant readers: silly song books.

Here are few we have been using over the past few days:
From Sandra Boynton --
From Christopher Canyon (who adapts and illustrates John Denver's songs) --

All these books are great because the songs are fun, the illustrations silly and the words easy to read and sing with the included CD's. A great way for my String Bean to practice her reading!

It's true, I grew up hating to read. Now I write action-adventures & mysteries especially for boys 8 - 13, who also may not like to read.

NEWSPAPER CAPER, TERROR AT WOLF LAKE, NORTH WOODS POACHERS, MOUNTAIN CABIN MYSTERY, BIG RIG RUSTLERS, SECRET OF ABBOTT'S CAVE & LEGEND OF THE WHITE WOLF, are compared by readers and reviewers to Tom Sawyer, The Hardy Boys, Huck Finn, Nancy Drew, Tom Swift, Scooby-Doo, Lemony Snicket, and adventure author Jack London.

My blog, Books for Boys, ranks in the top 5 on Yahoo and the top 20 on Google and you can find it at There you will also find links to my author's web site and another blog with 50 pages of reviews.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thank you,

Max Elliot Anderson

We love Rhinoceros Tap and Dog Train. In fact, we listened to them today during lunch. We love the Penquin song and that broccoli song!-Carmen
