  1. I love how you said that reading fiction books about different parts of the world actually opens up our outlook on life. Kids and adults should read fiction and historical fiction books to expand their imagination and view on life. Thank you for explaining why reading fiction so beneficial to people and how it can help them.

  2. I used to read fiction a lot when I was younger and I am thinking about looking for a new fantasy series to read, so I am glad that I found this article! I had no idea that there are so many benefits of reading fiction novels like the fact that it teaches life lessons and shows positive role models. Because of this, I think it might be a great idea to read fiction books aloud to my children. Also, the fact that I can learn new vocabulary and reading comprehension is great because I want to be a life-long learner and this will help me to keep learning new things.

  5. I love fiction & always have! You can lose yourself in all kinds of places & characters! I read a book a day at all possible & most are fiction! Thank you for your article.

    1. Those are all excellent articles. Thanks for sharing. Fantasy fiction would likely have been the last genre I would’ve chosen to read as an adult, but my husband insisted on sharing his favorites by reading aloud — not only Tolkien and Lewis, but others, as well, including Lloyd Alexander whose magical fantasies (The Iron Ring, The Chronicles of Prydain, and The First Two Lives of Lukas-Kasha, to name a few) have since become some of my own personal favorites. I am eternally grateful to my husband for introducing me and our children to these masterfully crafted tales, despite my initial disinterested protests.
