I came across this really cool article on GeekDad that was posted in April. It talks about the increase in ebook sales for children’s/YA from 2011 to 2012. There was a 475% increase over this period…..WOW! I know some kids have their own ereaders, but I’m sure parents and grandparents are loading up their ereader devices too to get kids reading while traveling, running errands, etc. This is an incredible time to be a children’s book author and I’m proud that we are reaching so many children with our books.
This is great news and certainly something to celebrate! Reading is so important so encourage your kids to read a book today whether paperback or in electronic form.
