If you have visited a bookstore recently, or ever... you already know how big the children’s section is - in fact, it normally occupies almost 20% of most bookstores.
This is larger than any other genre.
According to Publisher’s Weekly “between January 2014 to September 2015, children’s book sales are up 12.6% in the U.S., 28% in Brazil, and 10% in China, with 11 of the 20 bestselling books in the U.S. being children’s titles.”
Publishers.org cites similar numbers stating “The area of largest growth for the trade category was children & young adult, which had double-digit growth in both revenue (20.9%) and units (13.5%). Children & young adult fiction surpassed the adult fiction market with 843 million units and 746 million units sold respectively.”
Children's Books continue to grow when all other markets - including eBooks - are on the decline!
Best of all...
