Zamoof! My World. My Magazine.
I've met a lot of interesting authors and publishers on Twitter, so when I saw a children's magazine named Zamoof I decided to follow them, too. We've chatted a couple of time and they sent me three of their magazines for me to "taste" their work. (Thank you!)
When I was young, I loved getting magazines. There weren't many offered, but I lived for the day a new issue would be in my mailbox. So I read it in fifteen minutes, it was still new reading material and had word puzzles and the like in it. I could read it over and over again until it was ratty and starting to fall apart. By then, the new issue would come in.
These magazines remind me a lot of the ones I used to read. The letters to the editor are written by children. The pages are filled with facts, recipes, cartoons, and games. There is an ongoing series of a couple of graphic stories, true stories, articles that are particularly tuned to children, and movie information and posters. They are very colorful, well-put-together, and guaranteed to grab your child's attention.
They also accept submissions from children. Visit this website to get all the particulars: Zamoof
Whether you have a child between 7-12 who would enjoy reading and completing the games in this magazine or who would prefer to write their own stories or about their own experiences, this is a really good resource for you. Why not check it out?
