Better! The Summer Issue of Timbuktu Magazine! After all, isn’t summer supposed to be fun? Why bother kids with a workbook, we thought, when we can keep them engaged, entertained and can make them practice reading, spelling, math and science with an iPad magazine designed around them? Since we launched the latest release of Timbuktu Magazine, the engagement of our users grew exponentially, and we’d love you to try it and tell us what your kids think about it, what they love the most and what they would see improved. (We found that when children know that their feedback is going to have an impact on tens of thousands of other kids around the world, their feedback becomes incredibly thorough and detailed).
Anyway, engagement we were saying. Chances are that you’ll find yourself in a situation like the one illustrated below, if you get your kids Timbuktu Magazine.
This is what we have in the Summer Issue:
1. Math Mysteries, A leaking pool
Your kids will solve a two-step math problem, while trying to solve a mystery about a leaking pool!
2. Auntie Rita, Trip to the zoo
Help Auntie Rita put these pictures in the right box and learn about mammals, amphibians and reptiles!
3. Betty, Summer good resolutions.
Children love to correct other people’s mistakes! Have them play with Betty, and check out the grammar of this lovely Wiener Dog’s diary.
4. Lars and Yoko, Ice on a string!
This duo of twins will delight your kids with a series of small, fun science experiments! This month they learn about the impact salt has on ice, and how to raise an ice cube floating in water with the aid of a string!
Drag the ingredients on your pizza and get a preview of our brand new cooking app: Oscar Pizza Chef!
6. Creative videos
A special video titled “The truth about Polar Bears”, a whimsical video by Rockband Land, dubbed by an amazing kid.
7. Current events: draw the news!
Kids can illustrate Timbuktu’s newspaper and learn about the most interesting news from all over the world. This month, we picked a fun event in London!
Kids learn a lot of new words when they read Timbuktu Magazine. We make sure they don’t forget them, by asking them to spell the new words they learned on this funny game.
9. Finally, a monster!
Eegor is the hairy monster that kids can face and beat after they read all the stories in the issue. They spin Eegor’s wheel, and get a question about the stories they read. If they get the question right, they can shave the monster!
Well, you got it. It’s super fun. Download it for free on the App Store, check it out, and subscribe for $4.99 per month, or only $29.99 per year!
