Now in its seventh edition, Children's Publishing Market Forecast 2013 adds even more value as a critical research tool by exploring a much-discussed but little-understood side of the market: children's e-books. In a pair of nationally representative surveys administered in February and August in 2012 that you just can't get anywhere else, Simba answers the pressing questions pertaining to this segment: What percentage of adults buy children's and YA books, and in what format are they buying them? How do e-book buyers and iPad owners view the intersection between children and reading, and what extent do they buy digital children's books? And finally, how many are buying children's and YA print and e-books to read for themselves?

With more than three decades worth of wisdom pertaining to the children's and YA market, Simba examines the market for children's books segment by segment, from youngsters to tweens to teens, as well as an in-depth look at format trends. In addition, Children's Publishing Market Forecast 2013 provides high-quality, unbiased market intelligence on the publishing houses and the entire retail landscape, from independent bookstores to online outlets to big box stores.

  • Multi-year results from Simba's surveys of independent retailers across the country, which rate different books and genres as well as profiling buyer and retail trends.
  • Category trends for 15 major juvenile categories with five or more years of data.
  • Projections on the children's/YA market size through 2014

Children's Publishing Market Forecast 2013 also includes profiles of bestseller performance and financial estimates for companies such as Candlewick Press, Hachette Book Group, HarperCollins, Holtzbrinck, Houghton Mifflin, Penguin Group, Random House, Scholastic and Simon & Schuster.
