Best Books for Boys by Pedro Noguera

“Finding ways to incorporate information related to the history and culture of students is important in helping students understand what it means to be who they are.”

—Dr. Pedro Noguera

Writer, speaker, and well-respected educator from Harvard, NYU, and now UCLA, Dr. Pedro Noguera has partnered with American Reading Company to provide 50-book independent reading collections that speak to the identities and experiences of the most underrepresented students in American schools: boys of color.

The titles, hand-picked by Dr. Noguera, are stories that must be shared in every classroom, K-12. These collections will help educators across the country spread Dr. Noguera’s vision for engagement and excellence for all students.
