CHAPTER
BOOKS




A chapter book is a story book intended for intermediate readers,
generally age 7-10. Unlike picture books for beginning readers,
a chapter book tells the story primarily through prose, rather
than pictures. Unlike books for advanced readers, chapter books
contain plentiful illustrations. The name refers to the fact that
the stories are usually divided into short chapters, which provide
readers with opportunities to stop and resume reading if their
attention spans are not long enough to finish the book in one sitting.
Chapter books are usually works of fiction of moderate length and
complexity.

Children's Chapter Books has included books with intended audience age
ranges from 6 to 12 and up.

The term "chapter book" is occasionally found written as one word:
"chapterbook". In addition, the meaning of the term is expanding.
With the advent of online publication portals and e-books, story
length (in terms of numbers of words or pages) is becoming less
important as a marketing factor.

A novel, defined as having 40,000 words or more, was normally sold
individually; works of lesser length were most often printed in
periodical form and then later reprinted in anthologies. Today,
works of less than 40,000 words are often marketed individually.

PICTURE
BOOK




A picture book combines visual and verbal narratives in a book
format, most often aimed at young children. The images in picture
books use a range of media such as oil paints, acrylics, watercolor,
and pencil, among others.

Picture books are most often aimed at young children, and while some
may have very basic language especially designed to help children
develop their reading skills, most are written with vocabulary a child
can understand but not necessarily read. For this reason, picture books
tend to have two functions in the lives of children: they are first read
to young children by adults, and then children read them themselves once
they begin learning to read.

Some picture books are published with content aimed at older children or
even adults.

HOW TO
GET FREE
CHILDREN'S
BOOKS




There are many different ways to get free or discounted books for
your children. This article will tell you where to look.



Instructions


1. Books from Birth

Many communities throughout the United States participate in a
program called Books from Birth. Your child will receive a free
book in the mail, once a month, until their 5th birthday. There
are no income requirements. I know every child under 5 in the
state of Tennessee is eligible. Visit www.imaginationlibrary.com
or click on the link at the article to see if your community
participates.

If you are not in Tennessee, visit dollyimaginationlibrary.com to
see if the program offers free books to your community.

(RIF), International Children's Digital Library (ICDL), TumbleBookLibrary,
and Project Gutenberg.
