Join us July 26 at 1:00 PM ET / 10:00 AM PT / 6:00 PM GMT to hear about the latest research in children’s digital publishing: How parents and children engage with e-books, learn from them and make purchasing decisions.


Children’s publishing is turning a corner. Fueled in part by tablet technology and publishing companies looking for new digital revenue, children’s e-book sales are rising steeply in 2012.

Yet publishers are still in need of tangible information to know what kinds of e-books children and parents engage with best, how they learn from them (or fail to learn) and what drives their buying decisions.

In this one-hour webcast, sponsored by the Children’s Book Council, we will explore the most current academic research into how children engage with e-books, how effective e-books are in teaching children to read, and how parents and children make e-book purchasing decisions.

Attendees Will Learn 

  • Differentiated types of interactions children have with e-books and how they are classified
  • How well the current crop of e-books help children learn
  • Proprietary research into the buying behavior of parents and children
  • Best practices for making e-books user-friendly for kids and parents
  • Dr. Heather Schugar, Ph.D., assistant professor of literacy and reading at West Chester University of Pennsylvania
  • Dr. J. Alison Bryant, Ph.D., president of PlayScience, a New York-based children’s entertainment and education research company
Moderator: Jeremy Greenfield, editorial director of Digital Book World.
