My daughter was never interested in comic books, but my boys were and now my grandchildren are. I love how stories are told in such an illustrative way! It's such a wonderful way to engage a child with reading.
My grandchildren have a stash of comic books over here at Grandma's house. I have some older ones like Spiderman and Batman and they bring some of the newer ones: my granddaughter loves the Riverdale comics, which I hear is also a TV show. The boys really like the Scooby comics and really anything having to do with Zombies.

“It's such a wonderful way to engage a child with reading.”
I just found out that my favorite book as a child, The Poky Little Puppy is one of the top selling books of all time. I don't know why I think this is funny, but I do. Aren't top selling books supposed to be adult ones?
I have always been an avid reader and I'm encouraging my eight year old daughter to follow in those foot steps. Starting off reading to your child even before they're born is shown to have significant positive effects for them!
I just read an article from the Washington Post where its "writer" suggested that Amazon should buy out every library in America and replace it with "Amazon Books". What kind of a stupid idea is that? Who would entertain that thought? Could it be a reality since Jeff Bezos is mega rich now?
Bird Box by Josh Malerman is a post-apocalyptic story told in (a not too far) past and present tenses. Malorie finds out she is pregnant right when some sort of "thing" is making people go crazy and kill themselves and those around them when they see it. She must find her way to shelter.
Aesop's Fables is a great collection of short stories, specifically for kids. We used to read this book to our kids at night when they were growing up. Aesop was a slave and storyteller in Ancient Greece. The tales were only told orally until about three centuries after his death!
