Boys' April Books

We are wrapping up our school year and my boys are all busy finishing up their reading.. though we'll read here and there on our summer vacation I don't require them to read everyday.



1.  Iceberg by Clive Cussler- My oldest is really enjoying this series of books.  In this book Dirk Pitt is pulled away from his vacation to go to the North Atlantic where a ship has been found floating inside a giant iceberg.



2.  Firstborn by Tor Seidler-- Blue Boy has a son named Lamar that he wants to see take over the pack someday but Lamar is not living up to his father's expectations... a great story that shows it takes bravery and courage to just be ourselves.



3.  Al Capone Does My Homework-- In this third book in the series Moose's apartment catches fire one night and many on the island think his sister Natalie started it.  Now Moose and his friends must try and determine who started the fire and why.



4.  Wings of Fire the Dark Secret by Tui Sutherland-- Both of my younger two boys read (or began reading) this book this month.  As the 4th book in the series it introduced the island of the Nightwings.



5.  Explorer Academy: The Nebula Secret by Trudi Trueit-- Crus leaves his home in Hawaii to train at the Explorer Academy, a prestigious honor, but soon finds himself at the center of an evil plot. He must solve the puzzle of who is out to get him and why.



6.  Brotherband Chronicles: The Outcasts by John Flanagan-- These outcasts might be smaller than the other boys but that doesn't mean they are weak.  They go to battle at sea against the other bands in an ultimate race.  My husband read this series a few years ago and suggested Alec give it a try.  So far he seems to be enjoying it.

  5. Fellow homeschooler here! Love your list of books. Some of my kiddos love to read, but some don't. Sometimes it is finding those "perfect" books! Thank you!
