8 reasons to let your kids read comics

A friend forwarded me this link today, and after checking it out, I just had to pass this along. Melissa Taylor does a fantastic job of laying out why comic books and graphic novels are such a phenomenal tool to engage young minds, and also lays out precautions for parents (which can never be stressed enough, parents can get a little strange when they find out the book they bought for their kids has cute animals on the cover but foul language, violence and/or nudity on the inside).

Anyways, This is an absolute must read for teachers, librarians, and especially parents.




  1. Thanks! Actually, we school librarians love comic books and graphic novels. We will testify anytime as well as show you the research!
