Children's Books with Lots of Words
Middle-grade fiction and nonfiction books are the first books children read that are long and detailed and complex and deal with subject matter that is much more intriguing than most children’s picture books.
With an average page count that’s anywhere from 96 to 156 pages, middle-grade books are written for 8 to 12 year olds and they normally come in the small 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 size. They can be hardcover or softcover. Many are developed into series.
