How to Talk to Girls by Alec Greven

Do you need help with the ladies? Well, you are in luck-this is the book for you! When Alec Greven was eight years old, he wrote a book that instructed males on how to deal with girls.

His advice ranges from information about crushes-"To get a girl to like you, talk to her and get to know her." Also, once a girl does start to talk to you Alec gives advice about What to Say to Girls--"Be friendly. Be calm and don't be nervous. Don't say anything mean. Ask her a question and you are off!"

With Alec's advice and encouragement, boys of all ages will find the courage they need.

What I Thought:
What a great book! I love the advice Alec gives his readers, it is so neat to see how a second grader sees how one should treat girls. There is a certain sense of innocence that I wish could be bottled up and saved.

I also loved how Alec gave tips for scoring points with mom--"Your mom likes you to always be clean, and she's a girl."

The illustrations are cute and overall, a very sweet book.
