I love it when I come across something that is educational for Miss A but she doesn’t realise it. It’s not often that I get away with giving her something that her first reaction is “oh cool” to that I know is full of amazing educational facts. How do I know this? I may have read the magazine from cover to cover before giving it to her!
Amazing! magazine is aimed at boys and girls aged 7 and over. I think this is spot on as by this time children are more able to read independently and also may be starting to follow topics at school.
Inside the magazines are facts, stories, activities such as word searches, quizzes, a poster in the centre which is more than enough to keep children interested. I like the fact that is centres around one subject, especially useful for homeschooling or use in schools.
Currently there are 18 issues of the magazine that have been issued with themes ranging from the human body, snow, under the sea, extreme wind, pirates to name a few. A 12 month subscription will cost £49 or £23.99 if you opt for the digital subscription from amazing.org.uk. Personally I think the paper copy would be better than the digital purely because of the quality and the activities included in the magazines.
It’s not often I receive something that I can’t praise highly enough to readers of my blog, but this is definitely one of those products that deserve to be raved about.
