Comics For Kids
While I usually stick to teen and adult manga, I like revisiting the world of children's comics that I first started off with, such as the Beano, Dandy, Archie, etc. There are some amazing comics for kids out there and they're a great way to get your children into reading!
Chi's Sweet Home by Kanata Konami
It is the story of Chi, a little kitten who gets a new home. This is one of the most adorable series I've ever seen. Konami uses watercolors to bring the drawings to life. Chi's expressions are wonderful and the writing is easy to follow. I really recommend this one, even if you or your child aren't cat-lovers!
