#road2reading - it's an extra post! New early graphic novels - 7.27.21

A note to my email subscribers - starting Aug. 1st, you will no longer receive my blog posts through email.  This is something that Blogger is no longer supporting.
I am in the process of moving my blog to a new site.  Very soon you'll find me at www.mrsknottsbooknook.org.  There you will be able to follow me via email again, but you will have to sign up for it again.  I'm hoping to have this set up before the end of the week so you'll know the site is up and running!  Thank you for supporting my blog and here's to more years!

It's a special #road2reading post!  I've been having fun with the  #ChapterBookSummer series, but I have a lot of early graphic novel books to share!  Here's just a quick rundown of the new ones I've found!

Apple of My Pie by Mika Song

I loved Donut Feed the Squirrels.  This is a cute follow up, and we get to see Norma and Belly again!

Fetch! by Paige Braddock
Peanut, Butter, and Crackers: Fetch!
by Paige Braddock

It's the second book in the series and it's another cute one!  The friendship between these dogs and cat is so sweet and fun to read about.

The Mystery Monster by Amy Marie Stadelmann
Paige Proves It: The Mystery Monster
by Amy Marie Stadelmann
The first in a new series introduces us to Paige, a collector of facts who uses the information to help her understand the world around her.  This time she's collecting facts to prove there are no monsters in the neighborhood.  Broken up into chapters, this series will be good for readers who are looking for something just a bit longer.

Fish and Sun by Sergio Ruzzier  Clark the Shark and the School Sing by Bruce Hale  Friendbots by Vicky Fang  Tiny Tales by Steph Waldo

FriendBots: Blink and Block Make a Wish by Vicky Fang
Tiny Tales Shell Quest by Steph Waldo
This new series published by Harper Alley, a division of Harper Collins, is going to be well read by readers.  I like that the beginning of each book shares information about reading graphic novels (what the bubble lines mean, what panels are, how to read the panels).  While graphic novels are loved by readers, some are intimidated because they just don't get the order of how to read them.  These are a great introduction.

Friends Do Not Eat Friends by Jill Esbaum  All Ketchup, No Mustard! by Jason Tharp  Geraldine Pu and Her Lunch Box, Too! by Maggie P. Chang
Thunder and Cluck: Friends Do Not Eat Friends written by Jill Esbaum illus by Miles Thompson
Nugget and Dog: All Ketchup, No Mustard by Jason Tharp
Geraldine Pu and Her Lunch Box, Too! by Maggie P. Chang
This is part of Simon and Schuster's "Ready to Read Graphics" line.  Very similar to what Harper Collins is publishing right now.  Some have chapters, some don't.  There is a "how to" section at the beginning of each book to teach readers new to graphic novels how to approach them.  I particularly enjoyed "Thunder and Cluck" and "Geraldine Pu".  Looking forward to more in this collection, and it looks like 2 will be published this fall (Nugget and Dog and Thunder and Cluck)!

Remember to follow along on Thursdays to find chapter books for your readers! #ChapterBookSummer
