Good reads for Grade 6 students: Biography and autobiography

This LibGuide contains suggestions for reading in different genres. These are just some recommendations from the many books in the UWCSEA library, but may help you with authors or types of books you would like to read.

Biography and autobiography

Biography is a genre where the text is written about a person by another person. An autobiography, as the term suggests, is written by a person about her or himself. In the Library, these books are located in a relevant subject section, as a person may be famous for one thing or an event, or perhaps because of the job s/he did.

Biography and autobiography

As well as these suggestions and recommendations, you can also look at the library catalogue here, where you can do a subject, search, using the words to describe these genres: biography and autobiography.
