Wondering what other guys are thinking, feeling, worried about, mad about, glad about, and trying to figure out? Want the lowdown on growing up, getting along, school, family, friends, and being yourself - whatever that means?
Read this book. It's full of things guys need to know. Who says? Guys do. The author surveyed more than 500 boys ages 9-13 about what it's like to grow up today. The six sections in this book - You, Body and Mind, Family, School, Relationships, and Future - are based on topics they brought up.
Boys need and want advice on all kinds of issues, for all kinds of problems, questions, and concerns. Often, they dont know who or how to ask, and it seems to them that most self-help books are written for girls.
Everything about this book is for and about guys. Graphic-novel-style illustrations engage even reluctant readers. Quotes from real boys, results from a nationwide survey, inspiring stories, facts, and anecdotes keep them interested.
Journaling prompts invite boys to think about each topic and what it means to themfrom family life to fitting in, showing emotions, bullies, school, peer pressure, failure, handling anger, and more.
Positive, practical, and affirming, 100 Things is just what boys need in a world of mixed messages on what it means to be male.
Bill Zimmerman has written more than a dozen books used by families, children, and schools. As an editor at Newsday, one of the nations largest newspapers, he created a special section for young people on current events and other issues that has twice been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
"A snappy self-help guide with enough of a comic-book flair to appeal to guys."School Library Journal
"Boys will find this fun guide, with its myth-debunking comic strips, easy to relate to and full of helpful hints. The hip layout of the book, coupled with its use of quotes from real guys, helps to ease the embarrassment of addressing troublesome issues such as body changes, new social demands on a young teen, and divorce. Infused with character-building messages and advice from Zimmerman, 100 Things is a helpful and accessible resource for young men."Youth Today
