Firefly Magazine

It is with much excitement that I can post about my little children’s magazine. We’re nearly finished with the first issue, which will be out on 1st May. It’s called Firefly and it’s all about nature, the seasons, being outdoors and being creative. It’s aimed at children between 5 and 10 years of age. I have been working very hard on this for absolutely ages so it’s wonderful to finally be able to share a bit about it with you.

Here is a screen shot of the website, which is now live. I think I’d mentioned before that I’d been fortunate to be able to work with a great guy called John Truesdale from Heriot Watt University on the design. Now I’m working with possibly the most patient man on earth, Nick Cook, to get it all up and running. There’s still lots for us to do but it’s coming together slowly.

The website is located around an oak tree and as the seasons change the oak tree does too. Different animals and creatures come to visit the tree according to the timings of the year.  You’ll see it’s quite snowy just now and there are some snowdrops out. Please ignore that there’s a swallow there in early March! It also changes according to the time of day. The sun moves across the sky in real time and in the evening it is darker to reflect the night.

It would be great to have your support on this project as it’s a pretty big thing to be trying to do. If you like what you see please do tell your friends and family about it. If you do social media any tweets and Facebook likes would be most welcome! Visit the Firefly website here. Check out our Twitter page here. Like us on Facebook here.
