”This book is specifically designed to help children who want to create comics know where to start. It's full of great ideas and there's a plethora of space for students to create their own comics with writing and drawing tips all along the way.”Read the Review
My fourth grader is thrilled with this colorful workbook to practice her art and writing skills.
Gifted to my manga and comic book loving daughter to support her in developing her own. She loves it.
My daughter loves the comic book ideas to help her create a story and being able to draw the pictures.
My 8yo soon was very excited about this book. I think he will come back to it regularly throughout the year. It would be a fun way to do a final book report for an older student (with a little guidance in planning).
My daughter has always enjoyed making stories. She especially loves reading graphic novels and was excited to be creating her own. This is great at starting off slow and gets the child in to creating their own comics. It’s helps them broaden their creativity and story telling traits.
