Graphic Novels for Kids

We started reading graphic novels to Charlie when he was around 5 years old, and they were just as fun for me as they were for him. Nowadays graphic novels have such great illustrations, storylines, wit and humor. With their copious pictures and often funny and engaging plotlines, they can be a great gateway to spark […]
