I am writing this blog post hoping for a little help.
My school has a very active after school program, and I am proposing starting a Comic Book Club. The audience will be quite young — most likely 1st and 2nd graders. I have quite a few ideas for the sessions, but I also know that students aged 6 and 7 are consuming media at home that varies widely in content. Part of my charge as a school librarian, is keeping kids in a range (content and ability wise) that is close to grade level.
I have the tried and trues down like the Toon Books, Babymouse and Squish, Starwars as well as Tiny Titans. I am learning more about superheroes myself, and am hoping you all can pitch in with some ideas for superhero series that are in synch with students of this age.
I appreciate any insights you may have, and thank the many of you that share your fantastic programs on this blog and beyond so that we aren’t constantly starting from scratch!
