Boys: An Illustrated Field Guide by Heather Ross, pub. Abrams Image, 2017.
Have you ever wondered where to find a Quiet Boy, or how to best approach a Dangerous Boy if you encounter one in the wild?
Do you understand the nature of Smart Boys and how to treat the infamous Beautiful Boy?
These questions and more are dealt with in Heather Ross's field guide. Written with wisdom and whimsy, each type of boy is given an overview including Habitat (where the boy likes to be), Nature (what the boy is made of), and Behavior. Space is given to tools needed to navigate relationships with such boys. (For example, quiet boys benefit from mates who are good listeners.)
This tender tribute offers a non-judgmental look at boys, complete with illustrations and timeless descriptions for fast identification in the field.
I found something to delight in on every page. Recommended for adolescents, parents of adolescents, children, those recovering from heartbreak, and anyone who loves a bittersweet examination of people and relationships.
