Free Comic Book Day and reaching those reluctant readers

Best wording ever on reaching reluctant readers through comics:

In an effort to get his students to read, Lopez introduced graphic novels — essentially, comic books with elaborate story lines — into his curriculum two years ago. The experiment has paid off in a big way.

"I have noticed they are reading more than they have to," Lopez said.

"...more than they have to." I love that!
