Multcolib Picks: Zines for Kids
Annotation:Black and white comics set in a National Park in the southwest. Ernesto the lizard introduces readers to Ranger Dee and various animal characters, then heads into the Uncanny Valley, where everything gets weird.
Annotation:In this journal Liam (6 years old) and Jerianne (Liam's mom) write about caring for praying mantises as they hatched from eggs and matured. Lots of pictures and facts about mantises. Good for younger readers.
Annotation:Cassandra's best friend Andy surprises their entire fifth grade class by vomiting up a penny. He continues to throw up objects - classroom chalk, a lizard, library books, and eventually large objects like long lost relatives and cars. Everyone in town is horrified, and Cassandra doesn't know what to do to save her friend. For older readers.
Annotation:Written by a daughter and her dad, these zinesters love the Red Socks, and this issue of biff includes a special report on the million wonders within 253 paces of biff's brand new world headquarters in Portland. For older readers.
