Comic books, once decried as the defouler of America's youth, can be an invaluable tool of literacy. "Adventures in Graphica: Using Comics and Graphic Novels to Teach Comprehension, 2-6" is a look at using graphica--a term used to cover comic books and graphic novels--to inspire children to become better readers. Research has shown that people are more likely to embrace other forms of literature if they are exposed to some form as children. "Adventures in Graphica" is a unique and effective approach to promoting literacy, enthusiastically recommended.
