There are 32 million adults in the United States that cannot read. 32 million. That is larger than the population of the state of Texas! We place so much emphasis on education but yet how do we let this many kids become adults who cannot read? We can do better for our kids. We know that kids need access to books. An estimated 77% of children who are read to are more likely to read or attempt to read on their own. Help us invest in a brighter future for all children - just one book could be the spark they need.

Frankenstein Graphic Novel
This is a graphic novel that carries us through the original novel following the familiar story of Frankenstein and the evil deeds of the monster he creates.
I would recommend it because the illustrations that go along with the story sometimes replace actual text but can still portray the character's actions and emotions quite well. It is different than most novels but still wraps you up in the fear and pain the monster causes, so if you enjoy a good scientific fiction story, this is a great one for you!
