Nominated for the GoodReads Choice Award for Graphic Novels and Comics in 2016, Raina Telgemeier’s graphic novel focuses on the bond of family, growing up, and facing death in positive way. Taking place over the course of several months, culminating in Dio De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead), Catrina fights not only to deal with actual ghosts but the truth that her sister might soon join them (Telgemeier, 2016, p. 175-177). Children can enjoy this book for showing less terrifying view of how to face death, and that you don’t have to face it alone.

One thought on “LBSCI 737 GSLIS Week 13: A Comic Book for Kids

  1. The review is missing elements and some of the images do not seem to load properly. Also, the educational tie-in is to a site for pay. The idea is that you made those connections, either through CCSS, an activity or a topic that you might think it could be core or support in an educational environment.
