    "Graphic novels and comics are an excellent literary resource and often provide a ‘way in’ for helping children who are difficult to reach through traditional print text. They are a valuable source of independent reading that help children develop word recognition, fluency, and comprehension skills.”  (“High Quality Graphic Novels Can Make Positive Literacy Contributions To The Lives of Elementary-School Students” by William H. Teale, Jung Kim, and William Boerman-Cornell, Book Links, May 2008, Vol. 17, No. 5).  Following is a list of graphic novels and comics that we have found to be extremely popular with our young readers.
