What are realistic fiction books? What are the elements of realistic fiction?

Most chapter books belong to a literary genre called fiction, but we sometimes split those into more specific subgenres, like realistic fiction and contemporary realistic fiction.

This video helps explain what are realistic fiction books and what is the realistic fiction genre for kids and elementary students (and teachers) studying literature genres, using animated motion graphics and LEGO minifigures.

Of course, all this assumes we have a definition for reality and what is real. That’s the hard part, and is not addressed in this video.
