Research has shown that boys appreciate being able to read the same books as their peers. This is something we’ve listened to and acted upon. At FBS we have carefully selected series of books that we know will appeal to boys, and in sufficient numbers that they can read the same book as each other. Series include Skulduggery Pleasant, Divergent Series and The Hunger Games. Our library has comfy seating and is a quiet space that boys can go to during lunch times to read our book of the month, some non-fiction carefully selected to complement the curriculum or to complete ownwork.
