Research title
How is the bedtime story influenced by the digitalization?

Sub questions
– Where did the bedtime story come from? Why is it an internationally known thing?
– How digital active are kids (4-10 years old) nowadays? At what age do they start?
– How is the market for childrensbooks developing?

Synopsis
Within this seminar I am going to talk about children’s  books, or as I call it: ‘the bedtime story’. Where did these stories (especially for children) originated from? And because of the digitalization, how is the market for children’s books developing?  I found some interesting facts that will question your opinion about this trend.

That children are affected by digitization is not a new fact. I am going to show how and why this trend affects the daily bedtime story. Do people still read to their children before bedtime? I arranged an interview with Nickelodeon’s engagement manager. How do they notice the change and how do they deal with it? What do they expect in the near future?

And not unimportant, how do current publishers deal with this trend? With all this information I can give an precize prediction for the near future.

Motivation

I want to dive into the world of the bedtime story, because I am fascinated by the way children are entertained in such a simple way. The stories are really full of fantasy, and they try to give each day a happy ending for the child, so that it can fall asleap peacefully.

But as much I really like childrensbooks, I know that the market is changing. Youtube is getting more popular and apps are really important nowadays. I want to find out how it affects the bedtime story where we all grew up with.
