Edgar's Children's Literature Blog Page




The Early Literacy Engine



a. Who is your target audience? Why is this group your target audience?

Parents and fellow librarians of young children are my blog's target audience, as the blog contains in-depth analyses (with grown-up words) of children's books. My reviews hope to inspire readers to find the richness in books so that they will want to pick up a book, then another, until it becomes habit.
b. What strategies would you use to help your target audience to access your blog? Why would you use those strategies? 
As a librarian, I can promote my blog in a number of ways: By word of mouth I can share it with library visitors who are looking for book recommendations, and by posting links in appropriate online venues (forums and websites related to books for children & young adults), others will be able to find it.
c. How will you continue to contribute to the knowledge in the field of children's literature? 
I hope to continue to compile book reviews for any other titles I find worth sharing. By doing so, our cohort can continue to access each other's blogs to get insight into a particular book's strengths or weaknesses even after the program is complete.
