KOOKIE (as in smart KOOKIE) is an inspiring new print magazine for girls aged 8 to 12+.

In a world that often says there’s only one way to be a girl (think pink), KOOKIE strives to provide a genuine alternative – one that offers girls a rounded and optimistic sense of who they are and what they could become. 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!

Our 52-page magazine is 100% ad-free and comes out four times a year (March, June, September, December). Take a look at a few pages from the latest issue…
