KOOKIE / a mag for pre-teens / Issue 13
Kookie is the magazine we wish had existed when we were growing up. Aimed at pre-teens, each page celebrates the joy of imagination, inquisitiveness, individuality, and connections across cultures... with none of the intrusive ads, beauty, shopping, celebrities, or gossip focus.
In their own words:
"In a world that too often says there’s only one way to be a girl (think pretty, think pink), Kookie provides a fun, engaging and exciting alternative – one that offers girls a bigger, brighter view of the world and their place in it.
Every issue is packed with stories that build a girl’s confidence, teach her new skills and connect her with other cultures.
There are interviews with remarkable women and girls from around the world, profiles of pioneering women in history, original fiction and brilliant comics, plus a whole host of exciting features on everything from adventure and activism to science and sleepovers, as well as craft, debate, pets, puzzles, problems, posters and more.
Offering a sense of ownership, escapism and camaraderie, magazines are a ‘slow media’ that can be read anywhere, at any time (without a charger in sight)."
