Children's Books Genres
6 of 8
Religion as a genre includes stories related to the Bible, biblical characters, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Kwanzaa, and any other religious affiliation and its attendant holidays, characters, or tenets.
This genre permeates nearly every format of books — from board books to Bible story compilations for the middle grades. Diversity and multiculturalism are also big themes in school curricula, so titles focusing on these issues are often excerpted in textbooks — an added source of revenue for authors.
