Skipping Stones is an award winning multicural children’s magazine. If you have never seen a copy, visit their archives and browse through some of their online articles.
This magazine stands out because it encourages creativity, cultural diversity and explores ecological stewardship. It also provides a forum for children to communicate with other children from different backgrounds and countries. When you read the magazine, you realize children and youth are the reason for the magazine’s existence.
If you are looking for an interesting book, they have recently posted their 2007 Skipping Stone Honor Awards.
The latest issue of Skipping Stones includes, “No School for a Year! Learning on the Road.” that tells the story of two brothers who took a year off to travel and what they learned from their travels.
Skipping Stones’ Editor, Arun TokÃ©, recently wrote that they are seeking more articles and stories by children and youth concerning their experiences with home education and learning that occurs outside the classroom in their upcoming issues (Sept – Oct and Nov-Dec).
