Children's Books Genres

True stories and historical fiction are genres that have a basis in reality.

Who needs to make up a story when there are so many true stories out there simply waiting to be conjured into a children’s book? One real-life subject that all children seem to gravitate toward is true stories about animals.

Who needs to look further than one’s own history to find exciting stories of heroes and heroines from all over the globe? Based on real events or on real people in history, historical fiction offers the best of both worlds if written well: exciting stories and stealthy learning. It works well with picture books, chapter books, middle-grade, and YA.
