THIS IS SHANG-CHI Heroically Helps Reluctant Readers
We suspect that when it comes to our Marvel Blog True Believers, we’re preaching to the choir when we say that reading is fundamental (the dialogue is an important part of a comic, after all). However, some young readers have a harder time getting into books than others, in fact, this reporter didn’t learn to read until she was 8-years-old! Enter World of Reading: This Is Shang-Chi, a book that’s designed to help reluctant readers embrace the power of reading!
World of Reading
