Comic Books In The Education Of The Childrens

Comic Books And Children

Does the child love reading comic books, are you in favor of or against? A very controversial topic is: “children like to read comic books, in the end, is it good or bad?”

Many parents have experienced, that children fell in love with comic books, we often worry that this “picture reading” will affect the child’s interest in the text books, and even let the children adversely affected. It should be said that such a worry is a certain truth if the child only reads comic books, or the choice of comic book grade is not high, it is difficult to make people optimistic. But parents also slowly found that the impact of comic books, not strong, to some extent, in fact, it is good because the reading of comic books can enhance reading interest.

We all experience the same childhood, a child particularly likes to see comics, and particularly have a strong attraction towards them, reading day and night, and simply cannot stop. In fact, small children’s basically reading ability is not strong, especially within 1 year old, said the high is 2 years old, based on age restrictions, children often like to see more pictures and fewer words. If the child does not have a strong reading ability, the parents should know how to pick the book.

Will Comic Books Affect “Textbooks”?

Because many parents are worried that “my family like to read comic books, will affect the text books and creative ability”.

Many cartoonists or writers have said that shortly after experiencing the reading of comic books during childhood, have seen an increased interest in reading and because of the love of reading comic books, grew up and started writing, drawing, painting and so on.

So the other side of the fear, we might as well focus on the “let the children love reading” mind, let their childhood be full of reading, no matter what book (except violence).

Love for the comic books developed a very high talent in drawing A lot of children love to draw, basically copies of their favorite comic books, and almost all the comic books have this impact on children. For young children, the field of painting more is not a bad thing, the child usually wants to see comics or cartoons, and almost all will try to copy the characters in their drawing games.

Education Through Comic Books

Nowadays the general level of education has improved, but the good material of education is less and all other materials are filled with too much violence. If the child is affected, try not to be too hard to stop them. After all, the child can see through friends that you can not stop, but the more curious they are, they will not stop.

In contrast to the impact of this problem, we can directly affect the child’s life, with a better taste of the books we choose to influence the child. The more the child sees, more naturally can distinguish good books from the bad books. And, more importantly, do not be afraid of the child detours, be afraid that the child took the detours, and that you did not help them to take the right path. Children love to read comic books, turn this love in loving to read “text books”.


Children love to read comic books, turn this love in loving to read “textbooks”. It is likely for a child to follow paths similar to the things he learns in his childhood. Do not be anxious, let it be natural. Just teach children to read. We should cultivate interest, rather than step by step educating the child and be teaching him what is good and what is wrong based on our own experience. If you really want to make a transition from comics to text-books, we recommend firstly books that are as fun as possible. Then gradually increase the seriosity of the books.

Sometimes the child’s road may be slower, but we have to learn to wait, rather than force the child into something that maybe he’s not prepared yet and eventually get to the point when he will hate to read everything.

A Short Introduction To The Comic Books And Their Origins

Comic Books Origins

Comic books, often referred to as comics or comic magazine is a kind of narrative art consisting of several individual picture magazine or independent distributors of books, often accompanied by dialogue (often appear in speech balloons, whereas symbol “speech balloon” has almost become a comic book), also includes a narrative prose. Is a kind of both the art of painting, drama and writing art and the art of design art. In the history, the first comic book came from the United States in 1934, a book replica of the early newspaper comics, which established a number of cartoons used in the narrative means.

The origin of the term “comic book” (Comic, in the English original “comedy”) is a humorous comic book, although the use of this name, but comic books do not have to take a humorous style ; Most modern comic books are of different styles: Japanese and European cartoons are the best proof. In the United States, superhero types dominate the market, even if other types of comics still exist.

Cartoon Series

Long seen the cartoon series for children and young people as the lowest kind of commercial trash culture and comics ported libraries. Today’s new series for young people is published by the publishing house and now comics are entering schools.

In recent decades, the comic lost ground, but now runs for a comeback in book form. It is an expression of how the perception of comics has changed.

Revolution consists much in that we see the series as high culture. Comics are for children who may be learning, and they get to see a comic book the same as an “ordinary book”. But comics can take place among children’s books and picture books and must not stand on its own shelf, but among youth literature, say both cartoonists and teachers.

Already in the 50’s, it was signaled that comics were dangerous for young people. From the United States came the alarm about how the series inspired violent crimes and Europe broke in a debate on what was called range misery. It continued into the political 70s when children’s culture would be edifying.


It was felt that the comics were dehumanizing, brutalizing and created illiterate. People felt that the language was worse and comics were full of simplifications of reality and full of violence. Comics were banned in libraries and schools in several European countries. They are still fairly uncommon in schools and it is a residue of this idea that the comics are somehow not good enough for our children and young people.

Can they promote reading?

But when the children’s institutes now organize seminar readings, we can see the comic books as potential promoters of reading among children. And the comic book publishers started developing teaching materials for schools.

Teachers think it may be a response to it. The strength of the comics is that there are so many different angles. The format with images that support the text, and not least when it comes to the love of reading.

It was important that there is a long-term initiative that is not about any specific comics, but we believe that through this project we can help get the comics on the agenda. And at least we hope that schools can open their eyes for the comics and that it will eventually benefit not only the publishers but also cartoonists.


So in 60 years, the comics have gone from banned junk culture to a possible answer to the schooling system. Although a series of fans raise mixed feelings.

It may not be that you consider the comics as a gateway to the “real” books – the comics are real books. And we also think that when people talk about promoting comic books reading, you have to ask what you mean by reading? When reading an image is that okay? Comics don’t have many words – it also counts as reading? Comics shall be read, but then children should read based on their own quality.
