When I was younger I loved reading (clearly still do!) and would read anything that was put in front of me. Fast Forward and Smash Hits magazines were my guilty pleasure and the news was mainly about Take That and the Backstreet Boys. I only ever listened to ‘the news’ via Newsround. That was when I knew TV as I knew it was over for me and it was all about grown up tv… clearly back in the days before Sky and the Internet!
Things are slightly different these days as children have the ability to find out about current affairs in many different ways, but I love the idea of First News, the weekly newspaper for young people, sent through the post for your child to flick through over their breakfast! Perfect for ages 7 years upwards.
The edition we were sent, featured articles regarding the Scottish Referendum, fun trivia, World news and the mandatory Sports back pages. I love the fact it is set out like an actual newspaper as we know it. The fact that your child can receive their own newspaper weekly, addressed to them is quite exciting. We all know how lovely it is to receive something that is not bill related through the post!
I love reading actual books and newspapers, online apps are great but there is no other feeling like running your fingers over paper and ink and flicking through pages.
