Graphic Novels have a lot to offer as literature, educational tools, entertainment and more! Whether you are a teacher, educator, or reading specialist seeking to incorporate comics and graphic novels into the classroom; or a librarian or media specialist looking for assistance with graphic novel collection development, our website's mission is to provide you with comprehensive information on the latest graphic novels, interviews with creators and professionals like you, along with useful tools such as reviews, lesson plans, bestsellers and more.
Hosting a conference, workshop, or lecture on graphic novels in schools and/or libraries? Featuring a look at kid-friendly graphic novels, Issue #19 of the BookShelf Magazine is a handy resource for librarians, educators, and more!
To coincide with the release of the new BookShelf magazine, we've updated our Core Lists for the Winter season, to help librarians and educators stay current in their collection development.
Along with the top 25 new and relevant titles for Spring/Summer, we've also updated the top 25 perennial lists as well.
