Throughout the latter half of the nineteenth century, attitudes towards children and childhood underwent a dramatic change. Children were moving out of the factories and into schools, thus raising their social status within their family. Technological advances in publishing and an increased niche market of newly literate children caused the children's literature market to flourish by the end of the nineteenth century, with books being increasingly marketed more towards children and stories being written to engage children more.
