What are graphic novels?

Graphic novels are stories written and illustrated in a comic-like style. They tend to be fictional stories (although they can be non-fiction, too) with short blurbs of texts and lots of illustrations. These kinds of books can be a great tool for building reading skills and growing a love for reading.

What age range are graphic novels for?

There are graphic novels for any reading level! The earliest recommended age in the links of this post is 5 years old.

Why are graphic novels such a great tool?

  • Engaging: Because of the illustrations and action/story within a graphic novel, many kids may find graphic novels more intriguing. This kind of book may be especially helpful for reluctant/struggling readers. 
  • Easy-to-understand: The plotlines of graphic novels tend to be easy to follow and the short blurbs of text are easier for readers to digest. The illustrations also serve a huge role in helping aid students' comprehension. If an unfamiliar word is in the story, the context of the illustrations help kids understand its meaning.
  • Various genres: There are graphic novels about aliens, animals, middle-school life, robots, and much much more. Some graphic novels only have pictures, which may be helpful for early readers.
