Macomb Intermediate School District’s Must-Read Books for Kids

Reading helps develop language and comprehension skills, but it also immerses children into different worlds and teaches them new perspectives. Here, the MISD offers some top book suggestions for kids.

With the turn of a page in a book, children can journey under the sea, wander into the woods or blast off into outer space. Books can be a source of entertainment, but also education – as kids can learn about history or prepare for a milestone.

Reading boasts big benefits, too.

“Reading is essential to just about everything in life. It is a fundamental skill that unlocks learning and provides children with the means to build knowledge, enjoyment, independence and self-confidence. Reading is an exercise for the mind and is important to develop language and comprehension skills,” says JoAnne Elkin, an early literacy consultant with the Macomb Intermediate School District. “Reading ensures that children are exposed to vocabulary and encounter new words, phrases and writing styles. Reading requires children to process information in a way that television can’t. It’s critical to start at a young age and teach children the value and joy of reading so they grow to practice it – the best way to get better at reading is just to do it!”
