KOOKIE is an inspiring new print magazine for girls aged 8 to 12.

In a world that too often says there’s only one way to be a girl (think pink), KOOKIE stands apart. It’s packed with stories that build a girl’s confidence and expand her horizons. There are interviews with remarkable women and girls from around the world, profiles of pioneering women in history, original fiction and comics, plus lively content on science and nature, art and activism, sports and technology, as well as craft, debate, puzzles, pets and more. KOOKIE is surprising, informative, inclusive and most of all… fun!

Don’t just take our word for it. Hear what the KOOKIE community has to say!
