Graphic novels that teach? Absolutely! They teach inferencing, Chinese mythology, environmental awareness and Homer’s Odyssey. And they are fun to read to boot!
My son in 2nd grade and I are reading some great chapter books and graphic novels that would be perfect for independent reading for 3rd through 6th grade.
Reading strategies for getting kids to love to read: Book Love by Melissa Taylor of Imagination Soup.
Chapter books hot off the presses to tempt any reader including reluctant boy readers and for all kids ages 7 and up.
7th grade reluctant reader boy challenge: More books like Diary of a Wimpy Kid and books about skateboarding.
Middle grade fiction, Young Adult, non-fiction and graphic novels for kids ages 12 through 15 that read two or three grades below.
I met children’s book author Jarrett Krosoczka on a Live Chat at the Random House Read and Play Community and we had fun joking about more funny-but- difficult to pronounce authors.
Best books for children who like aliens that also help to build vocabulary. Book reviews by mom and 7-year-old include picture books, graphic novels and easy chapter books.
I’m continuing my search for books that my 3rd grade reluctant reader friend who likes funny will read. He’s a very sporty kid but his mom says his favorite sport is hockey and she hasn’t had luck finding any books on this sport. There are plenty of baseball and basketball books, and he plays those sports and more, but she thinks that if I can find hockey, he’ll read them happily. I’m excited to get him reading so I searched and found these books.
