God has given children a profound sense of wonder about the world and how it works. They discover the complexities of language at a rapid rate, picking up on environmental cues as they go, which is an important step in learning to read. As young teens begin to form opinions about the world around them, WORLDteen is there to broaden their knowledge beyond purely current event coverage, extending into opportunities for critical thinking and growing their discernment muscles early and often. They love having their own copy of the magazine to read. As a group we go through the Daily Shorts email content a couple of times a week. The kids are always asking to do just one more.
