My search for a Newspaper for kids started just a few weeks ago when every time I read the paper my daughter would just come and take it away. She hated me reading the paper as she felt I wasn’t paying attention to her then. After a lot of thought I said why not get her a newspaper of her own and cultivate that habit from the start. I remember how my dad made me sit down every morning and just look at the pictures. That’s how we all love reading now. So every time you think I wish my parents had done as much, think again they actually did as much, only you were too young to remember.
Anyways coming back to my search on the newspaper, obviously on the Internet its not god but Google who answers your prayers & questions. I googled and got to know of RobinAge. I was also lucky that my friends from the Twitterverse were extremely helpful. So if you are not following me on Twitter, Follow me now. @Kidsstoppress
