Review: New Britannica Magazine

Do you remember having the Britannica Encyclopedia when you were at school?

I used to love looking through them and researching the projects I was assigned.

Fast forward too many years to count and everything can be found online, but there is something to be said for seeing things in print.

Now Britannica have launched their brand new Britannica Magazine, which is a new monthly non-fiction family magazine for all ages – from seven upwards. 

Britannica Magazine aims to help children become experts across a wide range of fascinating topics, from space and animals to inventions and weird but true facts, with awesome editorial, beautiful illustrations and jaw-dropping photography.  

Every issue will cover a huge range of fascinating topics, for example: When will humans travel to Mars? What animals really rule the Earth? How many kilogrammes of poo are pooped by people every second? 

Curious young minds can explore astonishing lists in Listified, bizarrely connected facts in Factopia and the mind-bending Big Britannica Quiz.  In between there’s a sprinkling of puzzles, hilarious jokes and a recipe or two – it’s a gigantic sweetshop for the mind.  Subscriptions to Britannica Magazine start from as little as £5.99 a month.

My kids love finding out facts about the world, whether it be from the TV Horrible Histories is a favourite or books and these magazines have become an instant hit in our house.

Although the magazine is factual, there are plenty of fun activities inside to keep the kids happy and entertained. The joke section was a big hit!!
