Reluctant Reader Further Reading: Girls Graphic Novels

Back to RR.pngWhy are graphic novels great for reluctant readers?

  • Adaptations of novels act as a great introduction to the complete text.
  • The illustrations help understand context in the story.
  • Text is often easier to understand, as it comes in shorter chunks, and creates confidence in their reading skills.
  • They also help to improve a readers visual literacy.

While these books aren't exclusively for girls, they have proved to be firm favourites.
