The San Francisco Chronicle has been running a great weekly feature called the Three Panel Book Review, drawn and written by Lisa Brown.

She develops a book review in three cartoon panels with a short amount of text. They’re very funny and creative.

Using her concept as a model, it’s a great way for English Language Learners to practice the reading strategy of summarizing.

The Chronicle just today began creating an archive of past Three Panel Book Reviews (I really don’t understand why they didn’t make them available earlier), but they have a large number still to add.  The link in this post will take you to the archive.
