CHICAGO - The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), has released three new Graphic Novel Reading Lists intended for children from kindergarten through 8th grade.
Three Graphic Novel Reading Lists are available for children in kindergarten to 2nd grade, 3rd to 5th grade and 6th to 8th grade. PDFs of the book lists are available online in full color and black and white and are free to download, copy and distribute. Reading lists are available online at: http://www.ala.org/alsc/graphicnovels2014.
"ALSC's three Graphic Novels Reading Lists are full of engaging titles that are sure to excite children," said Ellen Riordan, ALSC president. "Librarians are encouraged to download copies of these lists and distribute them to families throughout their community."
Graphic novels on this list are defined as a full-length story told in paneled, sequential, graphic format. The list does not include book-length collections of comic strips, wordless picture books or hybrid books that are a mixture of traditional text and comics/graphics. The list includes classics as well as new titles that have been widely recommended and well-reviewed, and books that have popular appeal as well as critical acclaim.
The titles were selected, compiled and annotated by members of the ALSC Quicklists Consulting Committee.
