Good Reads for Kids

We all look forward to summer vacation, but these months can be long, hot, and... kinda boring. There's never a bad time to pick up a good book to read, so we're compiling  a list of good reads for kids, young adults, and grown-ups with an everlasting childlike sense of wonder. 

We're taking submissions! If you or your young person have a good read to add to this list, send an email to msu.wkms@murraystate.edu with a draft of your review and we'll be happy to consider it. 

See our complete list if good reads here.

Good Read: Wicked Years Series by Gregory Maguire

WKMS Youth Commentator Brynn Jones reviews the Wicked Years series, by Gregory Maguire. 

Hello, I’m Brynn Jones, here to give my review of the book Wicked, the inspiration for the Broadway musical of the same name. Book reviews are HARD to write because I can’t tell you all the reasons I loved the book because it would give too much away; but let me tell you, Wicked is probably one of the best books I have ever read in my life.
