Brain Power Boy is a great place for you to find resources for raising boys who love to learn.

Welcome, I am so glad you are here. My name is Sheila and I publish Brain Power Boy to help anyone who has boys find fun and natural ways for them to learn.  Learning doesn’t have to be a big struggle. Instilling a love of learning in a boy is a gift that will last a lifetime and I am here to help you do just that.

Brain Power Boy covers a lot of topics and they are all related to boys.  Girls can also benefit from the information presented here but the focus of this blog is boys, boys, boys!

You will find book reviews and the best books for boys, plenty of posts on LEGO, learning styles as they relate to boys, activities for boys, play and natural learning articles, homeschool unit studies (which are Not just for homeschoolers!,) plus some neat toys and games that are great for boys.  I also include posts that make us think about learning and the relationship we have with our boys.

As far as books, products or activities go I only put things on the blog that I feel are really awesome and interesting to boys.  I am not a fan of b.o.r.i.n.g. educational games so it has to have an element of fun and be high quality to make it onto the blog.  In other words, I am really picky so that you only get the best of the best.

Homeschool Unit Studies:

Homeschoolers use unit studies to study a certain topic in depth.  My lists are fun and enjoyable for everyone–even if you don’t homeschool.  If your boy enjoys the topic I am writing about, try one of these lists.  I’m sure he will have fun with it and learn something in the process.  If you have an idea for a new list, let me know.
