Our reading lists provide titles for young readers of every age and skill set. For example, did you love A Trip to the Bottom of the World by Frank Viva? The experts 100 Scope Notes, a blog from School Library Journal, offer a set of recommendations that may well delight those who adored Mouse's adventures in the Antarctic. The children books they have recently noted besides the TOON Books include:
Unspoken: A Story from the Underground Railroad by Henry Cole
Bear Has a Story to Tell by Philip C. Stead and Erin E. Stead
Lester’s Dreadful Sweaters by K.G. Campbell

Compiled from the recommendations of the most trustworthy and knowledgeable experts in the field, our reading lists are culled from children's blogs, publishing industry newsletters and librarians recommendations. We of course expect you to first read ALL the TOON Books, but with these lists, we try to help you and your child find the next appropriate book to continuously TOON into reading!
You may think we're crazy in using our precious web space to recommend other publisher's books, but in doing so, we're following up on what we believe, as expressed by TOON Advisor Art Spiegelman's quip: "Especially for emerging readers, comics can be the gateway drug into literature!"
Keep getting them books and comics, and more comics, and more books. Happy reading!
