Graphic stories are a great bridge linking adult and child storytelling approaches. After looking at many examples of comics family members will then brainstorm a story to be told visually, and put it in panel form working together or on their own. We’ll create mini comic books, or single panels, sharing our stories with others in the group. No need for drawing skills, just come tell a story! NCYA05SP17
