Juvenile Book Genre – What’s the best definition for the juvenile book genre? The juvenile book genre is made up of books with a variety of theme and plots that appeal to a young reading audience that spans the chapter book, middle grade, teen, and young adult genres (7-18 year olds). The books can be nonfiction or fiction and are educational and entertaining. The topics and content in the juvenile book genre need to hold the minds and attention of not only the targeted age group, but also be of interest to a wider range (younger and older alike) within the age group. The books need to speak directly to their heart, mind, and emotions, or be strongly relevant to their lives in some way.

Books in the juvenile book genre are often 2-10,000 words in length for ages 7-9, and 20-40,000 words in length for ages 9-12, and 40-80,000 words in length for ages 13-18.
