Why should you read and let your kids read comics?
- They are a great way to build confidence in struggling readers.
- They are a good way to help kids learn social-emotional facial cues.
- They introduce readers to a wide range of vocabulary.
- They help us learn to think differently by using multiple modalities – visual, spatial, and textual – to help us process what we read.
- Comic books are more than superhero stories.
