I’m a big Gary D. Schmidt fan, with Okay For Now being one of my favorites.
Thus I totally nerded out when I saw The Birds of America by John James Audubon. For $3.00!
Suddenly, there seems to be an abundance of interesting, graphic novel memoirs for kids. I’m fascinated by this trend. I don’t know why it’s happening or why it works. But I’ve read several over the last few months and would enjoy reading more.
Here are five great examples of graphic novel memoirs about girls:
1. Roller Girl by Victoria Jamieson
2. Relish. My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley
3. El Deafo by Cece Bell
4. Page by Paige by Laura Lee Gulledge
5. To Dance by Siena Cherson Siegel
