About Beginning Readers Graphic Novels

The titles below are generally recommended for Kindergarten to 3rd grade reading and interest levels.  Wordless picture books are recommended for younger students in this age range and are an excellent way to teach visual and comic literacies. 

These are only recommendations intended to help educators and guardians find titles to evaluate. The TDRL staff has not reviewed every listed graphic novel and has classified the interest level of these materials based on publisher information and reviews. Educators and guardians should use their best judgment on whether specific titles meet the needs of their children.

For additional Wordless picture books, search the the library collection using the subject: "Stories without words"
