Chicken Newspaper for Children brings current affairs to children. We help them make sense of their local and global community.

This is Chicken Newspaper

Chicken Newspaper aims to help children become better citizens of the future. We work with parents, teachers, businesses and corporations to make a global impact on primary education at a local level.

Chicken Newspaper was launched in 2014. We wanted to see how children would respond to the news if it was presented to them in a way they already understood; that of the picture book, textbook, or chapter book. When we saw that it was working, we felt we had to continue.

We decided to bring this style of visual journalism to as many children as we possibly could. What started out as an experiment has become a unique publication. It’s intelligent, non-patronising and most importantly engagingly informative to those children who read it.

Award-winning children’s books author and illustrator Ken Wilson-Max and sister Audra Wilson-Max, with the help of many small business partners, have helped Chicken Newspaper, and its feature supplement 17 Promises reach children in schools and venues three times a year.

Ken has more than 70 books in more than nine languages worldwide. He is one of the top 50 authors for books on diversity in the UK, voted by the Guardian Newspaper. He is also a member of IBBY (International Board on Books for the Young). In 2017 became publisher at AlannaMax
