Do you have a young writer at your house? If so, the seven dollar investment in a copy of new children’s magazine Alphabet Soupis well worth considering.
Alphabet Soup is a twenty our page colour magazine, with a range of content likely to appeal to children aged 6 to 12, especially those with an interest in writing. This debit issue includes an interview with children’s author Jackie French, book reviews, stories and poems and lots of kids writing. There is also a writing competition, writing advice and a nonfiction piece about the workings of a Bushfire Brigade.
There are no gimmicks in the form of glittery toys or enticements to buy the magazine – this is simply a magazine which offers children something to read an encouragement to write. As such it deserves to be read and to do well in a tough market.
