Toon Books are leveled beginner reader comics designed for students who are just learning to read. They are designed so they can be read independently. As students grow the complexity of Toon books grows along with the child, providing more complex text and increasing their vocabulary. They are perfect for all beginning readers. A number of their books are available free of charge online (and in 5 languages!).
"This entirely FREE resource allows children to read select TOON Books online...and in multiple languages! Children can listen to the entire text using "Read To Me" or activate the audio prompts on individual balloons when they need a little extra help. TOON Readers were developed in cooperation with Professor Garfield, a non-profit educational collaboration between Garfield the Cat and Ball State University."
