Chapter Books for Boys

All links to Amazon are affiliate links.

Boys and girls can most definitely appreciate the same books. This is especially true for a book like Harry Potter. Many of the books you see here will also be found on my Chapter Books for Girls list. There are books, however, that tend to appeal more to boys than girls in general. There are also books that will appeal to most boys, so while there will be some boys who have no interest and while there will be some girls who love the book, the largest audience for the particular book is boys. Books of interest to boys are books that are adventurous and/or funny. Most of them have the main character as a boy. 

I have included the reading level guidelines for each book. Always remember that if you want to read it as a read-aloud, your can read a higher reading level than your child can read on his own. This post contains affiliate links.
