Recommended Books for Younger Readers: List # 1
As mentioned in a previous post, I’ll be devoting some space from time to time for a continuing list of recommended books for younger readers. With the help of the fellow BC Refugees, it should be a nice resource for anyone (me, for example) who wants to persuade younger readers to investigate the worlds of wonder available in the literary/visual medium of comics and graphic novels.
The books listed here are not ranked or in order of quality or preference, but by alphabetical sequence to make things easy to follow. I’m listing recommended ages (purely subjective on my part - - - every young reader, regardless of age, has a different level of reading comprehension so choose according) as well as a credit to the person who suggested the book. There are many other titles I could list here but I don’t want to include a book if I haven’t personally read it and verified it, and I would ask all contributors to follow the same guideline. This is a work in progress. You can submit future additions to the list here or via personal email to me.
