“FABTASTIC! I’m going to read it myself when I go to bed. My 9 year old loves it!”
Lucy, Mum

“My children very much look forward to the sound of First News dropping through our letterbox each week. Zak generally disappears for an hour or so on a Friday after school to read it and I’m ashamed to admit that he generally knows more about current affairs than me thanks to his weekly newspaper reading. I love that First News is teaching him about what happens in the world in a sensitive but informative and factual manner. Our First News subscription is honestly worth every single penny.”
Emma Vantsone, Blogger

“My grandchildren love it! When asked how they know about certain matters they say, ‘First News of course.’”
Catherine, Grandmother

“I read First News, it is great! I keep randomly telling my family and friends facts and they’re like: “where did you learn that?” and I say ‘First News’.”
