Graphic novels are fun reads and the perfect way to get kids interested in reading! In case you aren't familiar with the format, graphic novels tell the story of any other book, just in a comic book format. They're always paired with colorful illustrations and smaller pieces of text. Some only use words in speech bubbles, while others do a mix of speech bubbles and sentences, and some have short paragraphs.
Whichever one you choose, these books are really fun. I've seen more and more come out recently, and their limited speech and pictures are a great way to entice unwilling readers. They subtly teach vocabulary and sentence structure in a way that's more enticing than a regular book but will get kids hooked on reading.
I hope you enjoy this list of graphic novels. Stick around until the end for a recommendation for adults!
