The Children's Newspaper

I don't recall devouring it quite as avidly as I did the misadventures of Dennis the Menace and Roger the Dodger in The Beano, but The Children's Newspaper remains a childhood memory. Published weekly in Britain from 1919 to 1965 it presented "The Story of the World Today for the Men and Women of Tomorrow."

You can browse digitized copies at www.lookandlearn.com/childrens-newspaper/browse.php?i=190322 and search if you register. It's free. What news were children reading the week you, or your parents, were born?
