Happy Holidays, All!

I am trying something with my jaded 4th grade boys.  Many hand back 
their card (with barcode for checking books out) saying "I'm not 
going to take anything".  I have a clip board and keep a list of who 
doesn't want books and why.  I go talk to each one as to why they 
choose not to select a book.  Usually I can find something they are 
interested in.  One such gentleman said he wanted books about law 
enforcement.  Indeed he has read all the books we have on the subject 
which are mostly very simple text ("At the Police Station", "Inside a 
police car").  I think this would be a subject worth  expanding.  Any 
titles, ideas where to find titles?  Our oldest are fourth grade, but 
those with burning interest will take books on a higher reading level.
