This is the typical advice from people outside children’s lit - do school and library visits. But that doesn’t scale up. There are only so many school days. It requires your physical presence. And these days, it’s harder and harder to get paid to do this.

It’s exhausting. It IS one way to sell children’s books, but not one I recommend.

There are many other ways to market to kids, parents, teachers, and other educators besides a physical visit to a school.
