Supporting Reluctant Readers


We all know that kids of all ages love comics! Of course, they’ve known this for decades in places like the US, Japan and France. So while we in the UK are a bit late to the party, at least we’re there now. 


Comics can be a great vehicle for starting a love of reading in reluctant readers, however, there is still some snobbery around comics and what people sometimes describe as ‘proper books’. Reading should be about amazing characters and worlds that inspire us. The medium shouldn’t matter because once we are hooked on comics, the world of books becomes more accessible.

Comics are really, really, really appealing to children. That natural enthusiasm is the fuel that powers someone’s path to becoming a reader.
