While I didn’t like comics as a kid, as an adult, I’ve become a convert to graphic novels. The Toon Books are perfect for new readers who love the comic book format. Benny and Penny, a brother and sister mouse duo, are some of my favorite Toon characters. Check out their nighttime adventure in Benny and Penny in Lights Out!.
For the more fact-minded child (or one who simply likes great photos of animals), National Geographic has published a series of readers.
Check out our brand new booklists for children at the various stages in their early reading lives. You may find some new favorites!
