We are Firecracker Forum and our passion is reading. Because we know that kids are minds-in-motion, we offer quality food for thought, and do so in an entertaining and tactile format. We love technology but know that nothing replaces paper as an intimate format for reading. Incredibly portable, never unwelcome, only paper eliminates the one-click-away distractions which interfere with developing attention spans. We respect children and have no advertisements on our pages.
Firecracker Forum is targeted to kids aged 9-13, but seems to appeal to big kids of all ages. Topics cover the gamut: from international to local, from science to entertainment, from money and logic to great fiction. There are reports on local history, events and attractions, as readers are encouraged to get to know and love their community. And we act locally too: Ten to Twenty Percent of the cost of a subscription goes to the subscriber’s school of choice.
“Everything Old is New Again”
Help your children rediscover a great medium and by all means help us make our paper better with your input. We’d love to hear from you.
