This has proved an ever popular choice amongst families, following the misheveous ways of Dennis and Gnasher. Full of fun and laughs, bright and colourful this is sure to be a successful way to get your child to chill out-you may even get 20minutes of reading out of them! Find out more about the Beano here.
A science and arts magazine for children 3-8years old. It’s “designed to engage children in scientific discovery in the most fun and creative way.” A genuinely great magazine, doing just what it says in the description. And they don’t hold back with covering all sorts of topics – this issue is all about wee and poo! Nevertheless, its so intesting, with interactive pages that need to be held to the light, puzzles, things to make, so many learning opportunities to be had by all. Find out about Okido here.
