One of the best ways to encourage children to read is through comics. They frequently have vivid, colourful illustrations that add to the stories' vividness and action-packed narratives. Additionally, comics can be a very helpful addition for beginning readers. Young readers may find it easier to follow along and comprehend the story when the text and pictures work together to tell it.
Best Story Books for Kids
Young adult fiction is in its prime right now, with books seemingly intended for teenagers being loved by readers of all ages. They have created characters and ideas that have become commonplace in our pop-culture discourse, such as Katniss Everdeen and Harry Potter, and they have also encouraged some of our best writers to write in the genre. TIME conducted this survey in collaboration with esteemed colleagues, including U.S. Children's Poet Laureate Kenn Nesbitt, children's book historian Leonard Marcus, the National Centre for Children's Illustrated Literature, the Young Readers Centre at the Library of Congress, the Every Child a Reader literacy foundation, and ten independent booksellers, to identify the best books for young adults and children. Their assistance has allowed us to compile two legendary lists of books: the 100 Best Children's Books and the Best Young-Adult Books.
