I wrote my dissertation on children’s picture books and learning through play. I interviewed Dr Amanda Gummer, a child psychologist who is founder of Fundamentally Children, a company that promotes the value of play in healthy childhoods. Amanda offered to publish a summary of my dissertation on their website to give me some exposure. The audience is mainly parents of young children so the style of the content could not assume a great deal of prior knowledge. I thought this was a great opportunity to simplify my dissertation for parents to read. I made it into an easy-to-read format, with bright colours and playful type, and fun visuals and full-page quotes.
