The Graphic Novel Choices for our Homeschool Year

Who says you have to read only novels during your homeschool year?

Not me!

Normally read a variety of literature, including graphic novels, and it has become clear that my soon to be 14 year old prefers graphic novels above all other types of literature.

As a result, we are going to spend the entire year reading and studying graphic novels in her English class.

Let’s talk about my choices for a literature year focused on graphic novels.

    How did this go after the fact? I am just stumbling upon this right now and am quite inspired! I would love to hear in a word or two how it went.

    1. We had a great time. I didn’t get to dive in deep with her for every book but we enjoyed reading them even when we didn’t do a deep dive.
