For The Love of Reading
"Children left alone to select their pleasure reading, outside of the books/materials used in the instructional setting for honing reading strategies, learn the pleasure of reading" (Clark).
If you are hesitant about or unfamiliar with graphic novels, I encourage you to take a look at this article! They are becoming a more and more widely accepted format for quality literature. I hope you'll take the time to try one!
A GREAT post from a librarian/ESL reader and mom of a struggling, reluctant reader. Once her 3rd grader found graphic novels, she blossomed into an excited reader! Reading about her journey can really show the power of these books!
Need a graphic novel to try?
El Deafo by Cece Bell
A great autobiography about growing up hearing impaired. A wonderful read! And a great look into the mind of a child struggling to fit in amidst an impairment.
My Friend Dahmer by Derf Backderf
A very dark nonfiction title about a classmate of the infamous Jeffrey Dahmer. If you have ever failed to understand the power of a graphic novel, this will change your mind. An incredible read.
Donner Dinner Party by Nathan Hale
All the titles in the Hazardous Tales series are great historical looks back on big events. This one is probably my favorite. Yes, a dark topic, but also a great collection of history that I learned a lot from!
