Manufacturer’s Description: Storytime is a kids’ magazine full of great stories. It’s packed with fairy tales, myths, poems, and much more – all beautifully written and illustrated, with puzzles, games and colouring in too! There are no adverts, and each issue arrives in a special envelope, so children have the excitement of receiving their own post!
Review: We’ve been getting Storytime for a few months and the girls love it. Each issue is packed with stories, poems, myths, and so on. The design is fanciful and colourful, with gorgeous illustrations and fun fonts – really appealing for kids.
Each magazine is printed on high quality paper, with no adverts and no gimmicky plastic toys – these are unlike every other kids magazine out there! They are simply absolutely gorgeous, full of wonderful stories and poems.
Each envelope is wonderfully decorated too, so your children have some exciting looking post to open each month.
Each issue includes fairly tales, poems, myths and legends, folk tales, as well as puzzles and activities. Extracts from classic stories like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the Water Babies are a great way to introduce children to some fantastic literature.
We took our Storytime magazines away with us for a weekend away. The girls have two bedtime stories each night, and Storytime is a great way to have a selection of stories to choose from without packing a pile of books.
Storytime work with a big selection of illustrators which means that every story has fantastic illustrations accompanying it, and the whole magazine is a visual feast as well as completely enjoyable to read.
It’s lovely to curl up with the kids on the sofa and read together with Storytime. I’m a huge reader and I really want to instill a love of reading into my children – this magazine is definitely a helping hand along their reading journey.
Storytime isn’t a magazine that you buy, read, and recycle – they deserve a place on your bookshelf to be enjoyed for years to come. I think Storytime is excellent, and amazing value. 5 stars.
