The Week Junior Magazine Subscription (age 8-14) Christmas Giveaway

My 9 year old loves facts. He gets a lot of pleasure from knowing everything and telling me things I don't know. For the last month we've been receiving a copy of the weekly young people's current affairs magazine The Week Junior and he's read each issue cover to cover.


Your children will hear or read some adult news coverage and this can be scary or confusing for them. It's often hard to know exactly what they've picked up on and how they feel, so it's difficult to know what you should tell them or bring up to discuss.


The Week Junior is pitched at the right level that they will learn the facts and the background and not just the scandalous headlines and terrifying soundbites.


Very much like a regular news magazine, such as it's big brother 'The Week' in format, each edition has around 32 full colour pages with longer in-depth articles and snippets breaking up the page. Longer articles are broken up into shorter paragraphs and there are plenty of illustrations, so even with a lot of information, it isn't intimidating to younger readers.


The Week Junior also has regular features. Puzzles, readers letters, a sports section, a technology section, recipes, photos of the week. It's all very easy to navigate and varied, so every young reader will pretty much find something (or everything) to interest them on each 2 page spread.


Although The Week Junior is recommended for age 8-14, it's a great way for anyone to learn the real stories behind the headlines and I'm learning far more than I realised I would. I'd also trust The Week Junior to tell the balanced truth far more than most regular adult newspapers...


The Week Junior is recommended for age 8-14 and is available weekly from selected newsagents priced £1.99 per edition, or by subscription for only £18.99 for 3 months/13 issues. You can even try it for 6 weeks for free! Check out The Week Junior website for more information.


The Week Junior have kindly offered a 6 month subscription for one of my readers as a giveaway prize. It might seem an unusual choice at first, but a magazine subscription is an excellent ongoing gift for a child in your life (especially if you really don't know what to get for them or what they need) and this one is suited to anyone 8-teen and beyond.

Entry to the giveaway is by Gleam form below and it's open to UK entrants only. The giveaway will end at midnight Sunday 3rd December. Full terms and conditions are at the bottom of the Gleam form.
