How Many Ways Can You Catch a Fly?
by Steve Jenkins & Robin Page


How many ways can you catch a fly? snare a fish? hatch an egg? use a leaf? dig a hole? eat a clam? Animals can do all these things, and in a variety of different ways. This attractive book will tell you how.

As always, Jenkins' simple text and paper collage illustrations both inform and entertain young readers.

The article was not only a good read but very insightful. I have a query though. How would you target a niche where there are not many blogs and those that are there are not kept up to date and have a low/very niche readership? Any tips would be gratefully received. animal image

Being active across many social media feeds - Twitter, Facebook, Good Reads, Instagram, etc - is useful. However, It requires a lot of time and energy, especially if your audience expects frequent or daily updates. It's no wonder that people get tired and stop posting.
