It is somewhat flummoxing and more than a bit exhausting that in 2020 someone still needs to explain that it’s okay for kids to read comics. (No surprise: it’s a librarian doing the explaining.) Let me let you in on a little secret: a lot of people my age in many ways not only learned to read from comics but just as crucially learned to want to read from comics. Want to grow a reader? Stop jackbooting your kid’s reading decisions.
