How to Find a Fiction Book
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Cathy went to the library to find a good book to read. It was summer vacation. She liked to read a lot in the summer when there was no homework. Cathy knew how to find books in her small school library. But this time she was at the public library. It was much bigger. She wasn't sure where to find the kinds of books she liked to read.
 
2     Cathy wandered around looking kind of lost. One of the librarians came over to her. She asked if she could help Cathy find something. Cathy told her she was looking for a good book to read.
 
3     The librarian told Cathy that her name was Mrs. Smith. She asked Cathy if she was looking for a fiction or nonfiction book. Cathy looked puzzled, so Mrs. Smith explained the difference. She told Cathy that fiction books are made-up stories. They are not true. Nonfiction books are true. They tell facts about a certain subject.
 
4     Cathy told the librarian that she liked mystery stories. Mrs. Smith told her those were mostly fiction. She led Cathy to a computer and had her sit down.
