#254 Why Risk It?
Drug Prevention

25420 page Comic Book (Graphic Novel), 6 ¼” x 10 ¼” - UE, MS

Why Risk It? Is a brand new type of material for NCSC. It is printed on paper, which is like a real comic book. It is a mix of cartoon and real photos and features Safetypup®. This book stresses that not all kids do drugs and concentrates on the consequences of your choices where drug use is concerned.

Comic books can hook early readers with cool illustrations and easy-to-follow stories. They can be the variety kids need to encourage them to read about important topics that were not as interesting when presented in other ways. Information on drug prevention can be incredibly daunting for kids; a wall of words, overwhelming to start and impossible to finish. This means it can be vital to use different teaching methods and tools. Comic books are the perfect information vehicle. They divide up the text into manageable chunks, which is supported by images. These images help readers increase their comprehension through the connection between words and images.
