"Children are more engaged by news stories; they read for longer when interacting with age-appropriate texts, pictures, sounds and animations" says Christine Brendle, Kids Dailies Founding Partner.

Award winning publisher Kids Dailies expands beyond Asia and launches its editions digitally in North America.
Hong Kong based publisher Kids Dailies started publishing daily newspapers for children in 2004. Kids Dailies searches for suitable news stories from around the globe that capture children’s interest. These stories are then put into context for young readers, along with age-appropriate articles, infographics, comics and other activities.
Fast-forward a decade and Kids Dailies has entered the digital world, releasing three new online editions for three different reading abilities: Daily5 for preschoolers; Daily7 for beginner readers and Daily10 for confident readers.
These versions leverage technology to provide young children with a customized and engaging reading experience, ultimately broadening their perception of the world. New digital features include text-to-speech for beginner readers, animations, comments sections, interactive maps and word games that are playable online. The digital editions offer every child the ability to customise their reading experience by building their own dictionary or loading texts in a dyslexic-friendly font. All editions of Kids Dailies are available in English and Mandarin.
