First Graphic Novel

Today's reading was light. I am on antibiotics due to an infections from eye surgery. I managed to read my very first graphic novel. I can see where this can have great benefits for my students, especially my non-English speaking students. The Book was called Owly: A Time To Be Brave. It is about an owl and his friends who learn that you should not be afraid of what you
don't understand. I will buy more graphic novels for my students in the future. I will however rely on other readers to make suggestions. I love words and found it difficult just looking at the pictures and trying to piece it all together when I know in my mind I should see words. Over all I gave the book a 5 and will put it on my shelf at school.
