About The Little Issue

A creative, fun magazine for schoolchildren aged five to nine years old in English, Afrikaans, isiXhosa, isiZulu and Sesotho. Filled with bedtime stories, competitions, and richly imagined, colourful activities, jokes and riddles, recipes and crafts. The content is smartly aligned with the South African Department of Education’s CAPS outcomes and is designed to raise literacy levels in this key age group. The Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) carries out an international survey of fourth grade students every five years and South Africa placed at the bottom of the table in 2011 and 2016, with 78% of children in that age group being unable to read for meaning. The publication is an initiative of The Big Issue organisation.
