NEW Narrative Nonfiction – Get Kids to Read!

These are lists of new, highly regarded “narrative nonfiction” titles for all age levels. 

“Narrative nonfiction” is a literary term for a text that presents nonfiction written in fictional style. To accomplish this, the writer pays close attention to elements of plot structure, character development and themes to make the story compelling.

State education standards now emphasize the use of nonfiction, specifically Narrative Nonfiction, to help teach critical thinking skills. Libraries with strong nonfiction collections and open communication with faculty find that they are ready to support full implementation of standards – and succeed! 

This is INTERESTING nonfiction that will be READ!
