Daily7 OnlineFall 2012 Website
The Daily7 is an online newspaper for children ages 5 to 8 created by the publishers of previous Parents' Choice Award winners The Daily10. It is based in Hong Kong and is designed to expose children to the English language and worldwide current events. It is a great way to foster development of the English language. Though the cost of a subscription to the Daily7 would be a bit high for United States students who can gain access to such programming for free, the annual subscription cost will seem reasonable to families abroad who are seeking high quality English language content for their children.
The Daily7 website is engaging and interactive. There are a variety of activities found in the newspaper that help foster awareness of the world (World News) and provide interesting facts (Daily7 TV and articles). It also allows the child to submit book reviews and App reviews that are shared with other readers. Like a traditional newspaper, there are entertaining components such as Sudoku, competitions, and the ability to create artwork.
