Matters of Fact: Aspects of Non-fiction for Children.
Fisher, Margery
This 488-page book is a discussion of and a guide to children's non-fiction. A non-fiction book is defined as one which communicates facts and ideas, though the writer argues that it is sometimes difficult to distinguish between fiction and non-fiction. She first discusses the major types of non-fiction (or informational) books, which include single subject, multiple subject, biographical, and career books. She then selects a number of themes representing various fields of knowledge and a wide range of children's interests at different ages. Within each of the four major types of children's books, the author develops criteria for evaluating non-fiction books and typical subjects therein. A bibliography is included at the end of each chapter. (Author/DI)
