MPS Reads

In support of our Ambitious Instruction Plan for reading, each month we will feature on the MPS website suggested titles for pre-kindergarten through grade 12 students. The goal is to

  • assist teachers, librarians, parents, and others in finding interesting books that will encourage and excite students to read more literature and informational text;
  • suggest titles that allow students to see themselves, explore other cultures, and discover more about the world in which they live;
  • increase the volume of books students are reading independently to ignite a passion for reading.
Please wait while we gather your results.
