Free Comic Book Day

So a national initiative to get kids interested in reading, Free Comic Book Day where comic book stores give away FREE comic books to anyone and everyone! I think libraries could easily get on board with this, partner with your local comic book store and get them reading! Stephen Krashen's book: The Power of Reading claims that Free Voluntary Reading (FVR) is key to a child developing language skills. Comic books can be one of the ways we help kids gain a real love for reading!
