The magazine was launched in Munich in 2007 by editor Muriel Rathje. It appears six times a year. Each issue includes three specially illustrated read-aloud stories by renowned children's book authors and illustrators like Ina Hattenhauer (visit her blog!), Katrin Wiehle, Marine Ludin, Tom Eigenhufe (check out his blog!), Mascha Greune. There are reading tips, a puzzle corner and fun science experiments for kids as well. So my 5-year-old is always excited, when "his" magazine is in the mail again (and I am too). The cover is washable btw.
