When children are young, they treat books as they would any other toy—they play with them! They may put them in their mouths or even tear them. When you allow children to explore books, they are learning how to handle them. It takes time and practice for kids to learn how to hold books and turn the pages.
Super powers? Check! Robots? Check? Aliens? Check! What else could you ask for in a graphic novel! The Hilo series has it all. D.J. and Gina find a mysterious boy, Hilo, who fell from the sky. Together the new friends help Hilo find out who he is and just what he might be capable of. Hilo will have to learn fast though since he wasn’t the only thing to fall to Earth! I loved reading about this modern boy super hero and the friendships he made. Besides, who wouldn’t want to go to school with a super hero!
