The title – Real – stands for Read Everything And Learn, and that captures their philosophy in a nutshell. The world is a fascinating place, filled with mysteries and wonders just waiting to be discovered by curious, young minds. Learning is the natural result of the process of discovery – and learning fueled by curiosity is just plain fun!
We read the JK-Grade 3 version of the magazine. My son is 4 so a little on the young side for some of the activities, but he did really love the stories and pictures.
I love that the stories are different lengths, engaging, the pictures are great quality, and there are no ads! Most magazines you get have tons and tons of ads, and so very little conten. Real is not like that. Also, I love that it is Canadian content, and the stories are Canadian. Thus words are spelled in Canadian! That is big to me lol colour is spelled like that, not color.
Although I don’t have any kids in the grades 4 to 8 category, I did flip through the magazine. The content is just as great, and there is a pie recipe that I plan on trying!! If I do, I will share pics!
