Graphic Novels to Get Your Child into Nonfiction

When I was a kid, the only non-fiction books I read tended to be when I was assigned a biography project and I would find a very dry, analytical book from the library that was often somewhat outdated. Now I know the error of my ways and love non-fiction, but at the time, my kid brain figured I’d keep non-fiction reading to textbooks. It wasn’t until college I discovered non-fiction graphic novels. The work came to life in vivid drawings, across a variety of art styles, and brought a brand-new energy to these true stories. It’s a great way for kids to learn about history, or memoirs, or even science in an accessible, colorful format. Here’s a list of some of our recent favorites.
