It's no secret that I read a lot of magazines, and for good or bad, this means that Irini loves looking through magazines as well. I love encouraging her love of literacy through all sorts of media, so when I was sent a press release for the launch of a new children's magazine, Giggle and Hoot, I was very excited!
Giggle and Hoot magazine is based on the ABC's popular TV show, and was developed in conjunction with an early childhood expert. From the very first look, Irini was beyond excited. Firstly, is is the same size as mummy's magazines, and this thrilled her no end. Secondly, it came with a cute little craft project to make your own felt version of Hoot, the owl star of the TV show. As for what is inside, let me tell you, it is a real treat! From colouring pages, interactive literacy and numeracy exercises, more craft projects, and a fantastic "share and care" reward chart, this magazine kept Irini entertained over quite a few days, and we still have more to go. Below is a page from the magazine that the publishers have let me post for you to download.
With the school holidays just about upon us, Giggle and Hoot Magazine is a perfect treat to keep your early learner entertained. Available for $5.95 at ABC shops and centres, and newsagents nationally, the publishers have been kind enough to give me two copies to give away. Just leave me a comment, and I will randomly pick two winners next Friday evening.
