Hey kids, comics!
One way my parents got me interested in reading was by buying me comic books. Comic books quickly inspired me to draw, leading to a developing interest in art, to become a professional artist, and later on, a teacher. I learned a lot through comic books: history, geography, fair play, equal rights, classical mythology, even foreign languages. Popular publishers, Marvel Comics and DC Comics, publish terrific books directed to young children and I urge educators and parents alike to check them out.
