Comic Book Textbooks Teach Creatively

I have two active boys… boys who do not enjoy sitting and staring at textbooks to learn. My oldest is a visual learner. I’m always amazed at what he’ll remember months later because he saw an image that stuck with him.

When he was just beginning to learn to read, rather than focusing just on “regular” books, I also brought in a mix of graphic novels. They still require reading but add in another element of fun.

But I have to admit — When I heard there were comic books teacbooks that could help my children learn science, I was skeptical. But I’m being won over, because I’ve discovered the magic of Manga learning tools!


What is Manga?

It’s a style of Japanese comic books and graphic novels, typically aimed at adults as well as children.

Why does it matter? And what does it have to do with learning?

I’ve discovered this tremendous resource for teaching kids science and all about the human body. Rather than a dry text and diagram textbook, concepts are covered in a story-based format that’s also visual, so learners of all kinds have more to glom onto, and it’s easier to recall.

Last but certainly not least – it makes learning fun! Imagine if your child requested to re-read a science text book. That’s what these amazing books can inspire.


We started on the Survive! Inside the Human Body series, and even I am learning!

Topics covered in this series about the human body: Human Body (anatomy), Digestive System, Circulatory System, Nervous System, Personal Wellness, Effects of Food on the Body, Medicine & technology, and Genetics.
