"Not only are they fun, they’re an incredible tool for helping create a genuine love of reading. While the connection of words and pictures at first seems playful, the skills readers develop help provide a practical foundation for other kinds of learning. From verbal and visual literacy to critical thinking and memory, comics are a great tool to give young readers a head start. In Raising A Reader, we’ll talk about what comics and graphic novels offer young readers, show what goes into reading a comic, and provide some recommendations for ways to create reading activities for individuals and groups. We’ll also give you directions to resources you can look at next. Here’s to comics, and how they’ll help your kids love to read!" — Jennifer L. Holm
