“Sometimes you have to be your own superhero!” -Anonymous

Today is the start of Comic Con International: San Diego!

Comic books are a great way to get your child excited about reading. Multiple studies indicate that comic book fans are just as proficient as text-only readers, often read above grade level, and have vocabularies that are more comprehensive (Source: parentmap.com).

Here are 10 ways comics do more than make kids laugh:
1. Improve a child’s ability to think critically
2. Develop imagination
3. Add vocabulary
4. Create confidence
5. Easy-reading format
6. Develop visual literacy
7. Learn new language
8. Engage reluctant readers
9. Accelerate appreciation and understanding of literature
10. Inspires children to believe that anything is possible and to aim high
