Graphic novels are amazing books for kids of all ages. While these books are part comic and part novel, they are 100% captivating. Children love the humorous adventures and vibrant illustrations. Importantly, kids are less intimidated by graphic novels because there is less text and the pages are filled with amazing artwork. Parents who bring age-appropriate graphic novels into their home are helping their children learn to connect sounds to written words and develop an understanding of the meaning of those words. Moreover, even reluctant readers earn the same feeling of achievement after reading a graphic novel as they would with a chapter book.
Graphic Novels are a Wonderful Way for Kids to Learn to Love Reading
In addition to helping children learn the joy of reading a good storybook, it’s important to understand that graphic novels also stimulate the brain and foster academic development. Students learn the correct usage and meaning of words and phrases by connecting the text with the illustrations. This holds true for character development and gaining a deeper understanding of the plot, setting, conflicts and solutions.
