Read Boys: An Illustrated Field Guide Online Free - Boys: An Illustrated Field Guide is a tender, coming-of-age gift book about the many different kinds of boys that girls (and boys) fall in love with and the lessons we learn from a broken heart. Heather Ross journeys with the reader through the many kinds of boys she will meet in the wild—smart boys, dangerous boys, beautiful boys, and more—and the wonders and mysteries they all hold. With its field guide approach, women learn how to identify these types of boys in their natural habitats and what tools are needed to navigate each kind of relationship. (For example, quiet boys are especially hard to identify because they hide in the tall grass or silent corners of the library!)
Written in a wise voice and illustrated full of whimsical imagery, Boys: An Illustrated Field Guide gives readers the confidence they need to reenter the dating scene. It’s ultimately a tender, relatable guide about emerging from heartache with hope, and most importantly, a stronger knowledge of the self.

There may be more words in this review than in the entirety of this book, but that doesn't mean that isn't one of the most powerfully poignant books I have ever read! This is a short but sweet picture books that measures in at under 100 pages. Yet, despite the limited length and the minimal writi...

Well this is adorable. I was worried about the direction it was going, but the ending was perfect. A bit heteronormative, but otherwise, a lovely little read and a fun addition to my shelves.

You will be a Girl Who Knows Herself.
And that will be the best love of all.
What an enchanting short book. I had never heard of this book before it landed on my doorstep, thanks to the publisher.
The illustrations are incredibly cute, but most of all: the story it tells is really important. I'm d...

I received a free copy of the book through a giveaway.
Omg, this book is the sweetest! It's an illustrated "field guide" to the different types of boys you might encounter in your life. I read it this afternoon to 2 of my grandsons and they actually sat through it. That is until I started describi...

The illustrations are 5 star - very cute and very well done. And the final message is also cute. But who is the intended audience for this book? Its too short to be an actual read (5 minutes to get through), too middle-school to be meant for adults (at least, it seems), and yet is a middle school...

Have a daughter? Know a girl? This book is a must-gift. It is sweet and smart and dead on and important for every girl to hear or read. I loved it as a happily married woman and plan to read it to my 6th grader as well as my 3rd grader. I've also ordered copies to send to my nieces in college. En...

Got this as an early read from Goodreads.com for free... I work with college students and one of my crew mentioned "ex-boyfriend" -- told her she needed to read this. Most of my 12 member crew has read it -- guys and gals alike.... Most of the girls I've asked about it agree this should be REQUIR...

For review. It was okay, just think it leant too much towards the heteronormative idea that only girls like boys and vice versa. Also clearly fell into stereotype of "girls are vulnerable to boys and ergo must be shielded", which personally I find problematic as a generalisation. Lovely art despi...
