From the Editor

Life is good. Students are reading because they want to not because they have to and I could not be happier as an educator or a parent. Studies clearly show that when students have choice in reading, several things happen:

They are motivated to read.

They excitedly and openly share what they are reading.

They enjoy the art of sitting down and engaging in story.

Studies also show that comic literature is in the top three choices for students. All we have to do now is provide students access to high quality comics, and use those comics in the classroom in order to achieve our state and national standards.

Following are the comics that came into the classroom this week:

Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam! #8
G.I. Joe #9
G.I. Joe: Origins #7
Muppet Peter Pan #1 (of 4)
The Muppet Show: Treasure of Peg Leg Wilson #3 (of 4)
Sonic Universe #8
Super Friends #19
