As the Zig and Wikki in Something Ate My Homework’s April release date quickly approaches, librarians and educators across the country are raving over the early copies we sent out.
In Zig and Wikki, the very first science-based early reader comic, two little space travelers land on our planet and find strange creatures like flies, frogs, and raccoons. Through their wild adventures, Zig and Wikki provide young readers with fun facts about nature. Second grade teacher Andrew Kauffman said, “This is such a great book to use when talking to students about science and how to include informational text in their own writing.”
Kauffman, who teaches at Chandler Elementary School in Goshen, IN, praised the brand-new TOON Book for “the great information it conveyed about animals here on earth…Tying the food chain into a graphic novel is one of the best ways for students to understand” the ties between different animals. “For that,” Kauffman continued, “I am very thankful.”
Kauffman told us his students ask for TOON Books all the time. Neither they nor you will have to wait much longer for new great, educational comics! Zig and Wikki in Something Ate My Homework will be released on April 6th…Let the countdown begin!
