Reading newspapers can result in children becoming interested and engaged in the world around them

First News children

I’m often asked how we persuade children to read newspapers. They need no persuasion. Why would they? Like adults, they want to know what’s going on around them.

We’re not afraid to tackle difficult stories in First News. We have to give context to the national and international events behind the often scary headlines that are coming at children from every angle – from 24-hour TV news channels, the radio, internet, front pages of newspapers in newsagents and from conversations with other children in the playground.
