A Junior Library Guild Top Pick: Annie Sullivan and the Trials of Helen Keller

On the Radar: Top Picks from the Editors at Junior Library Guild: Graphic Novels and the Common Core

The Center for Cartoon Studies presents Annie Sullivan and the Trials of Helen Keller by Joseph Lambert

“If you’re looking for official justification for the purchase of graphic novels, look no further than the Common Core State Standards. In grades 6 to 12, students will be required to apply the Reading standards to a variety of text types and formats, including graphic novels. Today’s graphic artists and writers provide a plethora of titles for beginning readers to adults. Check out these new titles that will strengthen your collection and thrill your readers…Already a Booklist Top 10 Biography Book for Youth 2012, Lambert’s graphic novel format does more than retell an already familiar story. Alternating the past and present, readers learn more about Annie Sullivan’s background.” Deborah B. Ford, School Library Journal
