Let’s face it, sometimes graphic novels can get a bad rap. It’s a common misconception that graphic novels have no educational merit or are simply a waste of time. However, graphic novels actually promote many literacy skills that other books simply cannot.
Here’s a short list of the benefits of reading graphic novels:
- Graphic novels help kids differentiate emotions using facial expressions and body language.
- Have a reluctant reader? Graphic novels can pique the interest of kids who can’t find the fun in traditional books.
- For kids who skim pages and read too quickly, pictures can slow them down so they soak up more details.
- For visual learners, graphic novels can have more of an impact. They can learn to connect story points and infer things just from visuals.
