Carisa Kluver's curator insight, December 11, 2012 12:25 PM

This article inspires me to keep doing 'quick studies' using survey monkey or other tools, to contribute to what we know about kids, digital media and consumer (usually parents/educators) concerns re: digital picture books. I hope these studies will lead to more reliable data eventually (10-20 years), but in the meantime this early analysis can help adults guide the current generation that will be adults by the time the 'real' research is published.

The author platform isn’t what it used to be. A new definition is emerging, based on the reality that in the 21st century, readers don’t depend on the Today Show or the feature pages of the New York Times to find a new book to read.
