What is non-fiction?
Non-fiction are things with real facts, such as news articles, books, maps, graphs, charts, or magazines. We read non-fiction to learn about real people, places, or historical facts. We also read non-fiction for fun. Some people read news articles to stay up-to-date. People know where to go when using maps. Sometimes, we use graphs or charts in meetings.
