My son absolutely loves your newspaper! He’s a very inquisitive boy and always gets excited when the postman brings the latest issue! He loves the craft ideas, the crosswords and finds the articles fascinating! I love watching him get inspired, or retell me his favourite facts he’s just read. Thank you for creating such an excellent newspaper for children!
