Today I have a fascinating Children’s Magazine to share with you, Scoop is a literary magazine for kids, and it’s jam packed with so many interesting features.
We have received two issues of the Scoop magazine so far, and both of them have been so interesting to read. Each issue has a them and we have had Issue 17: Our Planet and Issue 18: Mystery and Spies. I love the range of topics covered by Scoop Issues. Scoop covers everything from punk to painting, from science to poetry, from super-natural phenomena to playwriting! It’s great knowing that each issue is going to be so diverse, a particular favourite of ours was Code Breaker.
Scoop really is “A Feast of Words and Pictures for Kids” and I am really impressed by the amount they cram in to each issue. It’s wonderful to see a magazine with a range of short stories, non-fiction, poetry, comics, interviews, reviews, activities and quizzes. And it features original stories from authors and illustrators including Raymond Briggs, Joanna Lumley, Tom Stoppard, Catherine Johnson, Tom Whipple, Jacqueline Wilson, Chris Priestley, Laura Dockrill, Chris Riddell and many more.
The target audience is 7-12 so a little older than my daughter, but we have enjoyed reading some of the stories together and I am sure she will love these issues when she is a little older.I have included a subscription to Scoop in my Christmas Gift Guide as I think it would make the perfect pressie for any child, especially any that enjoy reading.
My daughter has loved getting her issues of Scoop magazine, she is always so excited to get post with her name on! A year’s subscription costs £36 and covers 6 issues sent out every two months. We can’t wait to see what’s inside the next issue, and it’s something lovely to look forward to.
We were sent some issues of Scoop for the purpose of this review, however all opinions and words are my own.
