LMGilbert - 2011-02-01 1:36 PM Exposure to graphic novels (versions of Baby Sitters Club , Pokemon & so on) doesn't seem to have any negative impact on my kid's reading of regular books; but she started out as a reader first before discovering Tintin and the rest. Some graphic novels are very adult, & just not appropriate for the kids, but they are starting to target the YA & Juvenile crowd now.
I just know too many kids who started on graphic novels, and never moved on to being regular readers. Graphic novels may or may not harm a given kid, but I'm pretty sure not reading them does no harm, either, so we went that route. It worked well. My kids are all grown now, and are all avid reader.
