Celebrate and discover the amazing world of comic books on Free Comic Book Day! Taking place annually on the first Saturday in May, Free Comic Book Day is a single day when participating comic book specialty shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their shops! This is especially important for your kids. Especially if they love to read comics. Remember it is important that your kids are reading it doesn’t matter that it is comic books. The important thing is that they are reading.
Celebrate Free Comic Book Day at your local comic shop Saturday May 2nd by getting FREE comics! With 50 titles available to choose from, there’s a story for everyone to enjoy!
To find a store near you go here. Check and see if they are willing to give out classroom sets as well. A teacher friend of mine got comics for her whole class one year and made a reading comprehension lesson with them. The kids had so much fun with that one. So you see learning can be fun and so can reading. Make sure to scope out where the comic shop is in your neighborhood so you can be prepared for Free Comic Book Day.
