Gossamer Books LLC Innovates K12 Education through Graphic Novels
New program launched to encourage schools and libraries to adopt Educational Graphic Novels.

 Gossamer Books LLC announces the launch of their innovative “Reach the school” program for schools across America. It is a unique program for schools that are open to experimenting with educational graphic novels as supplements to traditional texts.

 This program offers critically acclaimed graphic novel, “Abraham Lincoln: The Civil War President” at a nominal cost with free lessons plans that can be used as a supplement to conventional US history textbooks.

 Educators and Librarians can contact Gossamer Books at www.gossamerbooks.com to show their school’s interest in the program.

 Angel Oberoi, President, and founder of Gossamer Books LLC commented, “Educational graphic novels offer value, variety, and a new medium for educators who acknowledge the impact of visuals. They are ideal for librarians and K12 teachers for introducing students to literature and US history. This program provides an ideal opportunity for libraries and schools to experiment with this new medium without incurring large costs.”

 The educational graphic novel “Abraham Lincoln: The Civil War President” received critical acclaim from Publishers Weekly, who reviewed the graphic novel as “superb introduction to Lincoln’s presidency for grade-schoolers.” Larry Gonick, winner of the 2003 Harvey Award commended the book as being “engagingly written, and beautifully produced.” Jim Cox, Editor-in-Chief, Midwest Book Review stated that “the graphic novel format is ideal for conveying a historical biography in a manner guaranteed to attract a whole new generation of young readers to the life story of one of America's greatest presidents, making ‘Abraham Lincoln: The Civil War President’ an ideal addition to family, school, and community library American Biography collections!”.

 Based on extensive research and historical accounts, this educational graphic novel weaves together the most dramatic scenes of the Civil war, from the Underground Railroad and the key battles, to the Gettysburg Address and the destruction of the South. It also explores lesser-known stories such as the role of women on the battlefield, and even the frenzy of pet goats in the White House!  Above all, the story gives the reader a unique view of President Lincoln as a person.
