Does anyone know if there is a catholic magazine for children that reports on current events in the world...?? Thinking on the same line as God's World.

I don't know of a magazine like that (but will be checking this thread again to see if anyone else does!) but I just started a "Current Events" basket. I have a small basket that I keep on the bookshelf in the dining room, and I've started cutting out articles that the kids can read on their own. So far, I've taken a few things from our local paper, something from (I think) Our Sunday Visitor, and a short bit from a magazine of mine.

I know this can be labor-intensive and isn't what you're looking for, and I have to confess that I've not done much with this so far, but it's a start for me, anyway.

God bless,

Karen we do something similar with clipped articles (though I love the idea of a basket!). I find between the local papers, Time, Newsweek and OSV there are many kid-appropriate articles to share.

I used to have them on a bulletin board. This year my aim was to paste them in a notebook each week and then have the boys write a comment or two about "the week that was." So far all I've done is shown them the articles and then filed them away into our folders!

Sorry I didn't answer your question, Sue! I would love to find something like you describe too.

I just posted a website on this thread that may help you:

Be Not Afraid: A Catholic Editorial on Catholic Events

Hope this helps!
