RobinAge is a weekly kids' newspaper packed full of color and topical information appealing to children and young teens. It's noteworthy for being an Indian publication based in Mumbai, which provides an interesting cultural perspective. Regular features include articles, letters, crafts, personality quizzes (these are especially fun), recipes, and poems. American readers will naturally see some differences in names, places, holidays, and so forth, but what the paper reveals is how strikingly similar children are around the world in terms of their dreams, interests, and talents.
