Subtexts aside, our editor scours over hundreds of articles daily to get the best and the right balance for a newsletter. We really are focused on providing a holistic view of the world around us and hopefully can prevent some deep cognitive biases we have (had).
Whenever a new issue is available, we send you a notification. Our articles are enhanced using rich text and will portray short, sweet and funny stories and new information for the children. They're not just good, but the best. We depict scholastic as well as intriguing facts. Quality time for kids.
Our product is focussed on providing curated, high quality news articles to keep them familiar with the present times and to help them become more aware citizens of the future. The Science & Technology section provides an overview of the latest technological developments. The Trivia section helps them discover new info about animals, birds and plants.
Even if your kid doesn't read the newspaper, Pocket Scoop keeps them updated with the current events and a report of the happenings around the world. The best part is it's free.
