Discovery Box

I remember being impressed a couple of years ago by a batch of of titles from Bayard Magazines, and I noticed recently the review copies are still being eagerly browsed in various book corners they were left in.

I have just been sent some samples of recent editions from the three "Box" publications: Discovery Box, Adventure Box and Story Box.

Once again it is Discovery Box which really makes the most immediate impression. [I shall take a closer look at the two other Box series on a separate occasion.]

Aimed at 9-12 yearolds, Discovery Box is produced in tall portrait format, on glossy magazine style paper, with eye-catching page designs and great colour illustrations.

As Simona Sideri, the series editor, says in a brief video on the above weblink, Discovery Box aims to provide homebased support to the subjects children learn at school.

Each edition has a good mix of cartoons, quizes and how-to-make-it pages, amongst the information content, and every issue is helpfully colour indexed by subject in the topright page corners.

Recommended for the browsing areas of KS2 libraries and classrooms.
