Teachers Turn the (Digital) Page and Seussical Star Wars

Sales of graphic novels have been down for a while now.

57% of Kids ages 9-17 are interested in reading books on a digital device (from the 2010 reading report done by Scholastic).

Educators are showing increasing interest in reaching and teaching kids using graphic formats and electronic formats. This isn't an aberration. There are now multiple books available for teachers and librarians on choosing and using graphic materials in education.

Get out your purple crayon and draw the lines.

And a perfect start point would be with cartoonist's Adam Watson's Star Wars in Seuss style.
