We were having dinner with a new family, whom we had met through sport. Our conversation became tense when the father opened up about his views. graphic novels.

He shook his head as he said, “They aren’t very challenging.” My kids are great. should read real books.”

He didn’t realize he was talking about a graphic novelist. My profession was shared, which was awkward. My husband laughed as my 7-year-old daughter mentioned her favorite graphic novels. I responded with a variety of points that I thought he might not agree with. It was painfully familiar. Graphic novels are a common subclass of literature.

It begs the obvious question: What is the point of graphic novels if they don’t look like real books? What is dream fiber? Cat hair? Space goo? Anyway. It doesn’t matter if it’s teachers or parents, the hatred expressed is for a medium that our children love. My life’s work is in the medium.

Graphic novels are a popular choice for children, even though adults know this. However, many educators and parents want to discourage children from reading graphic novels. Let’s reread that. Adults do not want children to read. Why?

Graphic novels are a popular choice for children, even though adults know this. However, many educators and parents want to discourage children from reading graphic novels. Let’s reread that. Adults do not want children to read. Why? Graphic novels can be confusing for readers. They lack the essential components needed to develop literacy. Because of the way the illustrations help children understand the words, graphic novels can introduce complex words to younger readers than traditional books. Graphic novels require that the reader understands their meaning. decode both the words and imagesReaders and inferencers use synthesis and synthesis to make their brains more active. Multiple studies Studies have shown that comprehension increases by pairing words with pictures, from 50 to 120% compared to text alone.

Multimodal learning is possible with graphic novels. They help you to develop vocabulary, comprehension, critical thinking, and a sense of humor. A study University of Oregon Center on Teaching and Learning determined that comics have an average of 53.5 rare word per 1000. This is higher than adult books and picture books and the conversations of college graduate students. Most graphic novelists will eventually move onto prose novels. Some might not be able to read graphic novels, but that is okay. Let them choose what they like, if the goal is to teach our children how to read. The most important thing is for your child to choose their own reading material. raising a reader.

I am aware of this fact but I want to make sure my daughter doesn’t read books below her reading level. I have to stop. She wanted to learn Pizza My Heart, Mika Song because it’s part a series and she loves the main characters. It’s way too easy for her. What does that matter? Why should I stop her from reading if she is eager? She started the book, then reread the rest of the series. She wouldn’t have spent hours reading if I didn’t judge her reading habits.

Graphic novels can be a great motivator. Children love to read! Ask any librarian, especially the naysayers and they will tell you that graphic novels are the most widely read books. Graphic novels are appealing and highly sought after in an age where children have iPads, TikTok and games at their fingertips. Books! Reading is the ultimate goal. Let them read graphic novels.

The misconception is that educational activities are only pleasurable if they’re enjoyable. My daughter was excited to read Tales of a Seventh-Grade Lizard BoyJonathan Hill created the graphic novel titled. The hook that the boy is actually a lizard excited her. The wraparound cover features a human boy and a lizard boy. We read the book together, and she asked questions about identity and bullying. Parts of the book were hilarious and we both laughed loud. These books are exquisite, sophisticated, and very enjoyable. This seems like the perfect combination. We can’t ask for more from books.

Yes, I’m a graphic novelist. My bias is obvious. Maybe that will cloud the facts I present. I don’t wish to be presented with data at dinner with my new family. I don’t want anyone to question the validity of my work. However, the perception that graphic novels don’t exist is still prevalent. My rebuttals continue. I collect information about graphic novels’ positive effects on language development, comprehension, empathy. It’s a proud moment to create books that children love. After many years of this work, I realize that my job is not just to create books. My job is to ensure that our children have an easy path to success.

Graphic novels increase readers. This is the point.

Let your children read graphic books, please.
