Sullivan encouraged librarians, parents, teachers, and all adults who care about kids to do everything they can to keep boys excited about reading. Here are some of Michael Sullivan's recommendations for boys and reading:
- Surround boys with light, fun books that they enjoy reading.
- Never stop reading aloud to boys! Exposure to narrative helps with their comprehension.
- Give boys access to audio books! Many are auditory learners.
- Don't pay attention to the reading level of the books they are choosing. What matters is that they are reading! Developing the habit of reading is the most important thing.
