Benefits of Reading Comics and Graphic Novels for the Children

[Sponsored Review]

Both DaDi and I enjoy reading comics, so our children follow suit, and love to read comics. What are the benefits of reading comics and graphic novels for the children?



1. Learn to infer and be observant
Reading between lines is an important soft skill for the children to learn. Of course, other than finding the clues from the text, the children learn to seek clues from the cartoons.

2. Widen the vocabulary bank
Sometimes, some authors use more complicated words to make a pun or to illustrate certain intention. The children would be able to learn more vocabulary.

3. Strengthen family bonding 
As I mentioned earlier, our whole family enjoy reading comics. We share and discuss the interesting comics content, and this strengthen our bonding.


Currently, our children are reading Star Wars: Jedi Academy Trilogy Box Set from Scholastic


Star Wars: Jedi Academy Trilogy Box Set

  • Star Wars: Jedi Academy

About the story:
Roan's one dream is to leave home and attend Pilot Academy like his older brother, father, and grandfather. But just as Roan is mysteriously denied entrance to Pilot School, he is invited to attend Jedi Academy - a school that he didn't apply to and only recruits children when they are just a few years old. This series of  graphic novels follows Roan's three year at Jedi Academy where, under the tutelage of Master Yoda, he learns that he possesses more strength and potential than he could have ever dreamed.
