An excellent introduction to the world of newspapers, First News is a weekly newspaper aimed at kids aged 7-14, recently won the 2012 best weekly newspaper award and boasts more than a million readers – quite the success story.
This great newspaper offers kids the latest news written in a way to appeal to them, yet isn’t afraid to take a look at the big issues out there. It is full of colourful photography, fascinating stories including dedicated green news and animal news sections, looks at upcoming films and books, recent TV and music, some crazy but true real life tales and a bunch of fun games and features. Perfect for kids who want to know more about the world and have a fun time doing so.

We are completely behind the idea of First News. Kids these days (it makes us feel ever so old writing that, but there really isn’t another way to put it) mostly get their information from the internet, and as we all know the internet is a paragon of trustworthiness and reliability when it comes to the news. Oh, wait, no. It’s the other thing – unreliable, poorly researched and patchy in its coverage (of course there are good websites for news out there, it’s simply difficult to know what’s good and what isn’t). Mainstream newspapers are fantastically boring for kids (and even some adults) to read, full of economics and politics and written in a snooze-worthy manner.
So, there is a great opportunity in the market for a newspaper that delivers news to kids that they want to know in an entertaining manner. Well, there was a great opportunity – First News has got that little corner of the market perfectly covered. It offers great, well-researched reporting, coverage of topics that are interesting to kids and plenty to amuse and entertain on the way. We strongly support anything that has the aim of helping our kids learn more about the world around them, and as such we strongly recommend First News. NB
