Did you know there were 4.3 million births in the U.S. in 2006? The birthrate hasn’t been this high since 1961. What does this mean for you? It means babies are big business!
Even in a recession parents will spend on their children. They’ll spend on everything from a new car (gotta have more room for baby), to baby equipment, to computers and education and everything in between.
If you write for children or for parents, there is a big opportunity here. Parents, especially new ones, are always looking for information to help them raise their children and be better parents. Here are a few ideas for booklet topics you could write about to reach this massive market.

That’s 20 right off the top of my head! Surely you can come up with many more ideas. And, if you like to write stories for children, why not give them a special theme that parents and children deal with in real life, such as the first day of school, feelings, dealing with death, the birth of a new sibling, or manners. These themed stories will make excellent booklets that parents will want to read to their children.
To your riches!
