Didn’t you just love Geoffrey Hayes’ post yesterday, “Building Reading Skills Through Comic Books”?
My daughter is recently obsessively reading all the Archie comics from the library and it reminded me that I also loved Archie, Tintin and the Illustrated Classics that my school teacher mom had in her classroom. Now, it’s time for a new generation of comic books and I’ve found Toon Books to be a cut above the rest! These books amaze me with quality plotting, beautiful art and accessibility for younger readers. I hope you’ll all check out the links below and enter to win a copy of Geoffrey’s book.
