What is National Non-Fiction November?

National Non-Fiction November is an annual celebration of all things factual, created by the Federation of Children's Book Groups.

Non-fiction can be a great way to boost your child’s love of books, even if they are a reluctant reader. For some young children, reading about the real world is far more appealing than made-up stories. As a genre it covers an enormous range of topics – anything and everything factual. A non-fiction book could be about chemistry, Ancient Egypt, skateboarding, LEGO and everything in-between!

This year, the theme for National Non-Fiction November is ‘create your own non-fiction book’. We’ve created a guide to help your child make their own non-fiction book, but there are lots more ways to encourage your child’s interest in non-fiction.

Check out this list of some of our favourite non-fiction titles and read our tips for making the most of non-fiction with your child.
