Reviews

Krakk! Krash! Bwoing! Graphic Novels in Grades 1-5 Blog - SLC

The classic tales have been told in a charming and bit unusual format by the publisher Stone Arch Books in the Graphic Spin collection. The interest level is age 3 to 8 and the reading level is grade 1-3 with 40 pages. Most the goodies that teachers have often used in the classroom are here. Rapunzel, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, Hansel and Gretel, Sleeping Beauty, Three Little Pigs, Cinderella, Red Riding Hood, and my two favorite tales, Rumplestiltskin and Jack and the Beanstalk are in this collection. They are a little dark, but the main characters stand out. The art work is highly stylized, but appealing. In many schools where students have immigrated from South America, East Indian, or African countries these Germanic tales may be new to the students. Teachers often use the classic tales to build a commonality in the the classroom community. The ideas are sometimes used to reflect the common good within the classroom. Today that would be considered character education. Actually each of these have a character ed theme. Red Riding Hood is "Trustworthiness" and Hansel and Gretel is "Caring". I do not necessarily agree with the theme assigned to the books by Stone Arch, but let the children decide for themselves as the story unfolds. Teachers may read and explore five classic versions of Jack and the Beanstalk, so the teacher may save these fairy tale graphic novels for students to explore on their own. By the time the boys are in second grade they often balk at Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty as they considered these to be "girl" books. However, they would enjoy Rumplestiltskin or get a good laugh at the stylized wolf in the Three Pigs. Even with the budget cuts in libraries, I would still take a chance on a few of these and see if the kids enjoy them.
