Finally, a book that provides information in a clear way. Extremely well done. I highly recommend every library have a spare copy in reference. Parents can get a bird's eye view of the plot, educaional tie in and potential for violence and series to follow.

The book works like this: one hundred comics are reviewed, each with a list of titles if it's a series, awards if any, and educational tie-ins. If the comic includes anything, and I mean anything, that a parent might object to - e.g. potty humor, name-calling, cartoon violence - it is noted. Another 750 books are represented in the "if you like this, then try" lists that the authors have compiled for each featured title. Those lists include capsule reviews of each recommended title. Whew!

A good guide for both parents & children to help them find graphic novels & manga titles suitable for their various grade levels, from Pre-K to 1; grades 2-3; 4-5; up to grades 6-8.

Such a useful guide, especially with the proliferation of great graphic novels for younger readers. Search by grade level or genre. Includes cover images and page images of 100 kids' comics, plus 750 readalike recommendations, with summaries and content alerts.

What a great resource for parents, teachers, & librarians. Hundreds of titles to choose from I'm trying to figure out how get as many as possible for my classroom library. Divided into sections by grade level- each page not only reviews the title but also includes a list of other books in the series, educational tie-ins, a heads up of things that might cause problems (violence, "potty humor" etc.), and especially a "If you like this, you'd also like..."

Began to read through and highlight every other title in: A Parent's Guide to the Best Kid's Comics: Choosing Titles Your Children Will Love by Scott Robins and Snow Wildsmith - Grabbed it as an eBook which is also a fantastic way to make me use my highlighting and note tools on my iPad! This book might turn out to be dangerous for my book buying budget!
