Hello There & Welcome! My name is Cynthia Jabar.

I'm a Picture Book Author, Illustrator, Occasional Editor & Ebook Tinkerer published by Candlewick Press, FSG, Harper Collins, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt & other fancy pants publishers. I'm wicked lucky, I know. I also create & license characters & surface designs for games, sticker activity books, craft kits, temporary tattoos & other fun stuff.

But my favorite thing to do is create storytelling experiences with & for kids. I'm a self proclaimed Web Literacy Mentor that refuses to give up. My mission is to help empower kids to discover their voices, tell their own stories & become creators of content and not just consumers as they change the world for good. All while eating COOKIES! These are my notes.

Ebooks & Kids: Notes From #LaunchKids & Digital Book World 2014

My number one mind blowing take away from #LaunchKids, Digital Book World 2014:

"67% of U.S. children aged 2-13 are now reading digitally. That's up 54% from last year according to PlayCollective & Digital Book World."

Digital Engagement Is key Say Children's & Young Adult Publishers
"Dominque Raccah, CEO of Sourcebooks, agrees. The Naperville, Ill.-based publisher’s “Put Me In The Story” program met with tremendous success since launching in November 2012, enjoying a 100% increase on its revenue goal last year.
But Raccah said the more significant statistic is the 85% of customers surveyed who intend to come back. “That’s when I knew we had a business,” she said.
Raccah attributes that to a fully integrated digital ecosystem. Some 40% of significant user interactions with “Put Me In the Story” products are app-based, and key app titles are driving conversion of print."
