Kids, Reading and ERIC
The ERIC database can point you in the right direction to articles on helping kids develop their reading skills. The Reading Teacher, a magazine the library subscribes to, has great articles for parents and teachers. In the September 2007 issue, there is an article about Comic Strips as a Text Structure for Learning to Read. The library has many comic strip books such as The Complete Peanuts . What a great idea to get kids to love reading!
