Key topics & chapters:
• Why boys - the gender scale
• Brain development
• What motivates boys?
• Engagement in literacy & numeracy
• Fascinations - thrill, will and skill
“I have purchased the Brave Boys handbook and was really impressed with the content, easy reading and sound advice that it offers.
"In Knowsley, we are constantly striving to reduce the gender gap and welcome any support/suggestions of how we can develop the childcare practitioners practice to consider how they can provide stimulating opportunities to engage with the boys in their settings and promote their learning and development.” - Barbara Johnstone, Knowsley Early Years Service
