There are a lot of kids' stories about ghosts. There are a lot of kids' stories about friendship. But what if there was a kids' comic about ghosts... who are friends?!? That's what James Kochalka's Johnny Boo books are about and they're delightful, combining simple stories, good lessons, colorful artwork, goofy humor, and ghosts and monsters, to create an appealing series of tales that can be laughed over and read again and again.
Disney Pixar represents the pinnacle of what can be achieved within modern animation, and its heartwarming tales present often complex ideas in ways that children can embrace and understand. The studio's most recent release, Finding Dory, is a sequel to the smash-hit Finding Nemo, but also so much more than that. Like its predecessor, it's a fun adventure film for the family, but it also tackles the difficult subjects of mental health, disability, and being different.
There’s a great number of children’s comics out there for fans of Finding Dory, and we’ve put together a list of five of the best independent comics for kids of a variety of ages to try out next.
