July is Graphic Novels in Libraries Month!

In July 2019, Booklist (a publication from the American Library Association) officially declared July to be Graphic Novels in Libraries Month! Graphic novels often get a bad wrap, as a lot of people don't necessarily consider them "real reading." However, multiple studies have shown that this is not the case. As Scholastic points out, graphic novels: include a lot of text, they're engaging, and they feature complex characters, plot, and conflicts. They are great for new and old readers alike.

Luckily, the market for graphic novels has boomed in the past years, especially for kids and teens. If you're interested in expanding your graphic novel reading, check out the list below for some of the great kids graphic novels that have come out so far this year!
