Graphic Novels Get Boys to Love Reading
Research has found that graphic novels address the needs of multiple learning styles, and that the visualizations help readers to understand the story first and the text after.
My son is an example of how graphic novels help to solidify the concept that reading is fun! This collection of graphic novels are all books he loves.
My favorite graphic novel is the mystery series Max Finder. You have to use both the words and images to solve the short mysteries — about 5 pages each and they’re hard! What are your favorite graphic novels? Please share!

K is for Knights of the Lunch Table: No. 1 (The Dodgeball Chronicles) by Frank Cammuso.
L is for Lunch Lady series by Jarrett Krosocka. His name is impossible to spell. His graphic novels are fun to read. In fact, the Lunch Lady is in development to become a movie with Amy Poehler! Lunch ladies as super heroes?! Oh yes!
M is for Max Finder mystery graphic novel series. Clues are in the form of words and images and each mystery is only 5 pages long! A clever use of graphic novels to get reluctant readers reading!
N is for Ninjago, The Challenge of Samukai by Gregg Farshtey and Paulo Henrique. Are your kids into Ninjago? Ninjago Legos. Ninjago chapter books. Ninjago animated cartoon. And now Ninjago graphic novel. My house overflows with Ninjago. And to think I had no idea what Ninjago was a year ago. Silly mommy!
O is for The Adventures of Ook and Gluk: Kung-Fu Cavemen from the Future by Dav Pikey. My son is a huge fan of Dav Pikey and this is his latest discovery! Kung-Fu and time travel. A winning combination for little boys!
O is also for Odd Friendships as in Bird and Squirrel on the Run. Bird is carefree. Squirrel is paranoid. When Squirrel loses his nut store, they end up on the run to get away from Cat. This cute graphic novel has girl and boy appeal for kids ages 7 and up.
