Author Nabila Khashoggi, the creator of the luxury skin care and home ambiance line NABILA K, used to entertain her toddler son with made-up stories about a boy who traveled the world inside a live green egg that just so happened to be an alien from another planet. The new comic book series for kids introduces environmental and cultural issues around the world in a fun and entertaining way, offering hope and creating a sense of commitment

Parents attempting to get their child interested in reading can turn to comic books, provided the content is age-appropriate. In fact, parents who are willing to do some research will have little trouble finding a series suited to their child. Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane, for example, is a romantic, high-school take on the classic Peter Parker saga, with an emphasis on the relationship between Parker and his girlfriend. Another, Amelia Rules, follows a young girl and her friends as they solve a series of make-believe crimes. Amid its lightheartedness, Amelia Rules also touches on real-world issues like the toll that American war in the Middle East has taken on families.

Parents can also look to the well-known Archie Comics series and the expansive catalog of Disney comics, all of which are free of violence and offensive language and can be used as colorful building blocks in a young reader’s library.
