supernova mag - brilliant
Submitted by sproutingforth on Wed, 2012-05-02 12:48
We recently bought an issue of Supernova. It's a new local mag that our sprite deems 'far better than Kids National Geographic, any day, mom', so it must be.
This isn't the latest edition, it's the one we bought. The latest, issue four, is now out and all about the rhino crisis, so probably really worth laying your hands on.
The mag is published by BK Publishing and is a hand-drawn magazine, which makes it really different. It also has very little advertising, and the advertising there is has been designed inhouse to blend in with the mag - refreshing, no?
Here's what their website says about them:
"Supernova is a hand-illustrated magazine for children with inquisitive minds who want to learn more about the world around them. Our pages are filled with articles on a variety of subjects, including history, technology, science, sports, ecology, world cultures, arts and social issues to inspire a culture of life-long learning.
The magazine also loosely follows and enhances the school curriculum and is used by educators as a classroom resource. Jam-packed with interesting articles, fun activities and excellent reviews, Supernova is an informative and entertaining magazine that is sure to keep you glued to its pages!"
Just minutes after reading, two thirds of our family were engaged in an active demonstration of the haka on the lounge floor - loud, yes, boisterous, yes, great - absolutely!
