Best Books for Stocking Your Inchy With| From Schools All Over the Country
The Show Must Go On
The mounting uncertainty of when schools will be back in school has changed the way students of all ages are learning. Younger students need a lot of attention, as they are in their formative years of education—building the framework for their education for the rest of their lives. One of the main pillars of education for young children is literacy. There are problems in nearly every school district—parents having to make time to teach, when there is little time, internet problems for virtual students and teachers, disruptions in attendance, and the list foes on. Kids must continue to learn. The show must go on.
History Tells Us...
One constant in education throughout the centuries is books. Through this difficult time in human history, reading can offer a lifeline to children of all ages—continuing their education and holding their interests. The ability to explore new worlds and meet new people between the covers of a book ignites a child's imagination and places personal value on each child's reading abilities and books. Whether a student has never owned a book of their own, or is interested in starting their own personal library, introducing new literature to a child is key to their personal and academic success.
Schools Around the Country Agree
Throughout the pandemic, school districts have found great success in having an Inchy the Bookworm Book Vending Machine for their students. The vending machine, full of books, each different and specifically selected for the students who will benefit from it, is part of PBIS, or Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports, reward system to incentivize young students to be kind, helpful, and attentive, and rewards them with tokens to purchase a book from Inchy.

Every school district is different. Every student is different. This list is compiled based upon the books that schools have used in their book vending machines, as well as lists from National Public Radio (Children and Young Adults) and Common-Sense Media. The in-text links include these lists referenced. The most important part of books and literature is what students do with them—reading, learning, and fostering a love of habitual learning to carry throughout a student’s life.
