Why Should I Let My Child Read Graphic Novels?

Graphic novels are a fantastic choice of book that might be often overlooked!

First, it might be good to clarify exactly what a graphic novel is.

Merriam-Webster states that a graphic novel is “a story that is presented in comic-strip format and published as a book.

what is a graphic novel, should i let my son read graphic novels, what kind of graphic novels should i let me child read, what can i give me child to help them enjoy reading, what is a good comic book for my son, my son only wants to read comic books, my child hates reading,

Next, why are graphic novels good choices for reading?

  • Graphic Novels are very engaging and fast-paced.
  • Can keep a reluctant reader engaged and interested
  • A graphic novel can be created from a much more advanced text to make it easily consumable like a Shakespeare tragedy turned graphic novel. 
  • The illustrations help to reinforce the text and concepts in the story.
  • Helps build vocabulary with high-quality language. While there is less room for text in a graphic novel, words are chosen to make the biggest impact. 
should i let my child read graphic novels, are graphic novels good for my kids, what will help my child like to read, my child hates reading what should i do, how to get my child interested in reading
