      September's Issue: The Elizabethans

      In The Elizabethans issue, children can explore the fascinating reign of ‘Queen Gloriana’ herself. Considered to be a golden age in British history, the Renaissance was a time of Arts, exploration…and treason! Learn about the symbolism in Elizabeth’s portraits and invent some fun Shakespearean slang, take a trip down the frankly, rather stinky streets of Elizabethan England, and read about the ‘Lost Colony’ of Roanoke Island in 16th Century America.

      THE HARRY POTTER issue available as back issue.
