How to Talk to Girls

By Alec Greven, Illustrations by Kei Acedera

(Harper Collins, New York, 2008).


This is a humorous and positive guide with great illustrations for boys on navigating and surviving relationships with girls. The nine-year-old author offers simple advice (e.g. childhood romances donít usually last very long), along with some encouragement: success is rare but it happens! My experience is that boys don't usually admit they are interested in girls, but they are eager to read this book. Highly recommended.
