Update 9/13: Funds for this opportunity are running low! We're super excited to see how many classrooms are using these graphic novel sets to capture young readers' imaginations. We'll update this page as soon as funds run out.
TOON Books is the world's premier graphic literature publisher, and they believe that making meaning out of reading with the aid of visuals may be the best way to become a lifelong reader. TOON aims to introduce more children to the pleasure of comics while supporting teachers with effective teaching tools to promote visual literacy.
