Graphic Novels: Read the Pictures

Traditionally, we think of storybooks as a lot of words and only a few pictures. In this collection of books recommended for children ages 3-12, the pictures come first! Using a technique similar to comic books, graphic novels use visuals to guide the story, adding text only to fill in the gaps. More complex than picture books, graphic novels require young readers to have a certain sophistication — as well as strong comprehension skills — to appreciate them. Graphic novels can be read with an adult or independently, and are especially good for struggling or reluctant readers. Discover many more related titles with Book Finder.
