Comics may not just be for kids anymore, but, of course, they still are especially well suited for stimulating the construction of neural pathways involved in decoding text, images and linking them together in chains of meaning – aka learning! – all of which are crucial to developing kids' minds. Even more importantly, many kids are naturally drawn to comics and quite a few actually enjoy making them. What better way to keep kids out of trouble and get them in touch with their creative side than encouraging them to make their own comics? And that's exactly what Comics: Easy as ABC aims to do. Penned by noted comics educator and author of the staple of adult comics pedagogy, Cartooning: Philosophy and Practice published by Yale University Press, this new work presents comics as a most approachable form, and jumps right in to teaching its ABCs.
