Kids Love Comics

So I've just discovered this website, Kids Love Comics. I know some of the children's librarians around town don't particularly like this new graphic novel format...why o' why?

Did you know?

  • the fastest growing section of public libraries is the comic book "graphic novel" section?
  • Librarians have discovered that once high-quality graphic novels are put on the shelves, kids can't get enough.
  • a growing number of schools are using comics in the classroom to teach kids narration, dialogue, and visual design.

So, maybe you're interested in pursuing this cool format? Here are some suggestions.
