Looking for old/used/unwanted comic books!!!
Hey everyone! As you may have read awhile back, my daughter got caught taking reading tests (cheating.) for some of her friends in class who have a hard time reading…Decent intent, horrible execution…
So, in an effort to give her the tools she needs to REALLY help her friends, we are starting a weekend comic reading group. I believe very strongly that comic books have the power to effectively teach children new reading skills and comprehension. (My son taught himself how to read at 6 yrs old with comic books and went from repeating kindergarten, to a fifth grade reading level in one year.)
Surprisingly, kids keep asking my daughter when they can come over and read! Most of them HAVE NEVER EVEN HELD A COMIC BOOK!!! I don’t have enough comics (that I am willing to un-sleeve…)
for this group of kids. I honestly didn’t think there would be so much interest…
If ANYONE has any old comics they don’t want, PLEASE let me know or feel free to send them directly to:
