"There is a wonderful book called Teaching with Calvin and Hobbes by Mary Santella-Johnson and Linda Holmen that we highly recommend. The authors use very humorous Calvin and Hobbes comic strips to motivate upper-grade students while teaching a variety of skills: vocabulary, comprehension, figurative language, and problem solving."
