At the library you can find a large collection of chapter books for kids or what we label, juvenile fiction. In this section, you will discover kids’ books that provide complex stories, vocabulary, and dilemmas. These books have lots of text, multiple chapters, and few pictures. There is no set age when kids can start reading these stories. All kids develop reading skills at their own level. Even if a child isn’t ready to read chapter books on their own, parents can read them aloud. This introduces them to more complex storytelling and helps to develop literary skills, even if they are just listening. All ages can enjoy chapter books.
