Graphic novels: ALSC recommended lists

Recommended reading lists of quality graphic novels are available in Bellview library, compiled by the Association for Library Services to Children (ALSC) and updated for 2016.

The ALSC defines a graphic novel as a “full-length story told in paneled, sequential, graphic format.” ​The books listed in these brochures were “widely recommended and well-reviewed,” and “have popular appeal as well as critical acclaim.”

Bellview library has print-outs available for two grade levels: Kindergarten to second-grade and third- to fifth-grade. These lists would be great for building a classroom library or a child's collection at-home.

Brochures are also available as PDFs from the ALSC website. Those who work with older children may be interested to note, a sixth- to eighth-grade list of titles is available as well.
