Using Comic Editors with Kids

Using Comic Editors with Kids
by Susan Stephenson,

If you're a regular reader here at The Book Chook blog, you know I love what comics and comic editors offer kids. To celebrate the launch of my newly renovated website,, I'm offering a brand new booklet, Using Comic Editors with Kids, as a free download for any interested parent or teacher. The PDF booklet explains why the comic format is so engaging and beneficial for kids, lists some of my favourite online comic editors, software and apps, and includes suggestions for using comic editors in an educational context.

Like many other booklets on my website, Using Comic Editors with Kids is CC licensed, meaning you can download and share it with other parents and teachers provided you don't alter it or charge for it, but give proper attribution. Find it on a special Page at my personal website called Free PDF's and Resources. Once you've landed on that website Page, find the cover by scrolling down. Click on the cover's thumbnail to open it, or right click to save it to your computer.

What else will you find at Apart from information about me and my role as a children's writer, and the special page devoted to storing Free PDF's and Resources, you'll find a new blog called Fun with Learning. Blog posts there will concentrate on articles about encouraging kids to read, write and create, and be less frequent than The Book Chook thrice-weekly posts. My website will also be a space for me to collect/curate groups of resources. Expect to find collections like my favourite websites to help make reading fun, and soon, other favourite collections of websites that fit certain themes.

My personal website, like The Book Chook, is a work in progress. I hope to use it as my own little library. Librarians have always been my heroes so here's my chance to join their ranks! It will help me make posts here at The Book Chook more multi-layered. Hopefully, The Book Chook readers will bookmark and pin Pages they find useful there.
