Visually stimulating chapter books for boys 5-8


Recommended Posts

DS5 loves Captain Underpants and has been devouring them.


What else is similar in terms of reading level and especially graphics. He loves the Flip o Ramas and comic books in those books. It doesn't have to be silly.


He enjoys a lot of other types of books but only as buddy reading or strictly read alouds. I think the break up of pages of text with the graphic reading encourages him to read more by himself.

In addition to what's mentioned above, you could try graphic novels.  There's a whole series about mythology (Graphic Myths and Legends) that my DS#2 devoured soon after Captain Underpants.  Some are a bit, er, graphic, so you might want to look through them before giving your kid free reign.  My DS#2 was fine with them at 6yo, but sensitivity to such things varies from kid to kid.
