Trent University Library guide for resources in Education.

Juvenile Fiction and Literature

Juvenile Fiction or Literature

The Library catalogues juvenile material and classifies them as either literature or fiction. Here is the distincion.

  • Juvenile literature is used for non-fiction material written for a juvenile audience
  • Juvenile fiction is fiction written for a juvenile audience 

If you are doing a lesson plan on pioneer life, and wanted material based on historical happenings, then juvenile literature should be based more on the historical record. However, it is hard to sometimes determine, so an item may be catalogued as both literature and fiction.
