I am working with a teacher who has her class read a multicultural book for an assignment (excluding WWII time period).  While we have many books, the majority have a female main character.  I am wanting to find more titles that would appeal to the boys.  I had several boys say, "aren't there more books with boys not girls".  I would appreciate any of your suggestions.

Thank you,
