A new innovative magazine for children


Bangalore: There are scores of  Islamic children's magazines, print as well as online.  Considering the technological advances made and kids'  tech-savviness, these magazines hardly cater to their needs. In this scenario,  the recently launched  'Quest Jr',  a digital interactive magazine for children in the age group 7-12 years, is a boon.  Started by a group of  dedicated parents who were looking for a digital product that would provide appropriate and interesting content for young readers, the magazine aims to challenge and broaden the minds of curious Muslim children everywhere. With a contemporary design and enriched content packed with interesting interactive features, Quest Jr. features a gamut of topics across the spectrum of Islamic and general content. It  aims to present Islam and its tenets in a balanced and more acceptable way. Using latest technology to engage young readers, this monthly magazine provides insights into topics such as Stories from the Quran, Lives of the Companions and the meaning of Quranic ayahs in an age-appropriate format. Colourful and highly interactive, it encourages children to use multiple senses and to touch, scroll and hear as they read. Says one of the promoters, "Our goal is to provide an educational and entertaining website for Muslim children  in order to nourish the inquiring minds and broaden  their Islamic horizon.  Along with the Islamic topics, other regular features include learning Arabic vocabulary, a recipe, travel, a science page and a news bulletin. Quest Jr can be read on multiple devices including I Pads, Android tablets as well as desktop/laptops.  To download your free demo copy, and to get more information, please visit www.questjr.com.  This magazine will help parents  train their children the Islamic way.  (Aftab H.
