Just Another Teen Reading Books

As someone who writes both middle grade and chapter books, I'm often asked what the difference is? They're two different age groups with some overlap, but there are many other things setting them apart.

Today, I'm participating in Just Another Teen Reading Books's annual event Yay for Middle Grade Books! Click here or on the banner below to read my post on Understanding Middle Grade.

    1. Chapter books are between picture books (books with lots of pictures and few words) and middle grade (books of approximately 30,000-60,000 words, I think?). Chapter books are usually read by kids ages 6-9 and they have some illustrations (like Junie B. Jones and Piper Morgan, of course), but the focus is on the text, not the pictures, if that makes sense.

  3. Great post, Stephanie. Those middle grade years can be tough, but thankfully, the kids survive them. Enjoyed reading it.

  4. Hi, Stephanie - I wish that I had met you when I was a School Principal. I am at least thankful that I have met you in time to select books for my grandchildren!!
