Do you consider comics credible reading?
Do you see comics as only for reluctant readers?
I strongly believe that comics and graphic novels count as credible reading materials and aren’t just for reluctant readers.
It started with my middle-school language-arts teacher mom who owned hundreds of comic books for her classroom; comics like Archie, Spiderman, Tintin, and classics. My mom believed that reading is reading. She went to the ends of the earth to provide her students with every possible option in reading material, comic books included. Which, of course, worked to get her students reading.
The truth is children need both variety and choice to become readers.
We, at KidLit TV are huge fans of graphic novels. You can find out more about them on our website here!
