I clicked on the School Library Journal Link from the resource guide. On this website you can find many different books and they are all sorted into different categories such as age level, diversity, and reviews. I learned about many different books that would interest me to read in the future. This could be very useful to us when looking for books for our students to read in the future.

The graphic novel I chose to read was Smile. Smile is an graphic novel written by Raina Telegraima. It gives an account of the author’s life from sixth grade to high school. Raina just wants to be a normal sixth grader, but one night she trips and falls, severely injuring her two front teeth. What follows is a major earthquake, boy confusion, and friends who turn out to be not so friendly. The entire story goes from Raina’s sixth grade to tenth. The way that I read graphic novels is by panel to panel. I usually look at the pictures first and then go back and read the words. This is the same way my neighbor reads graphic novels by comparing but I do know many people that read the words before looking at the pictures.
