books must be filled with action and dialogue—not a narration of the facts or events. Bring to life the
person being featured and the time in which they lived. The audience for such books is children 6-12
years. Typical length is 1,000 words for 6-7-year-olds; 10,000-25,000 words for 8-12-year-olds; and
over 30,000 or more for those 13 and older.
