IN CASE YOU MISS MY POST IN YOUR DISCUSSION THREAD...

Marcy - you might also reach out to Peter Gutierrez here at MC POP - he works a lot on little dude/ette books. Check these great study guides linked below do consider posting a crowdsource question here in the GN & Comics Discussion forum - you can title it something like "QUESTION: Good Graphic Novels for Elementary Students?" - you can include the suggestions already given here and then I can broadcast it to the whole membership - should get great ideas from the crowd.

At any rate - do check:
