Before this year, my 6th graders had no idea what a graphic novel was. Now they CRAVE THEM!
I’ve introduced them to Babymouse, The Lunch Lady, SMILE, and Amulet.
Our librarian has won my heart (and theirs) by buying A LOT for the library. The shipment came in yesterday. My 6th graders went crazy over them and have reserved most of them already! 🙂 Heart be still!
The biggest hit with them so far out of the new ones is the BONE series. One of my boys MADE me (yes, he twisted my arm!) read 3 different parts of his today. FUNNY STUFF y’all!
Thanks to all you graphic novel authors out there who have found a way to appeal to reluctant readers AND to set readers of all kinds on fire for reading! 🙂
