 “Let Them Eat Cake!”
This month’s issue of AQUILA Children’s Magazine
Is a brilliant mixture of Science, Art and History.
From Pavlova to Galette des rois…
Children can join in the big sugar debate this month, as AQUILA examines the world’s unhealthy obsession (痴迷) with all things sweet: they can experiment with the chemical magic that lies behind everyday baking, investigate the negative effects of sugar on our bodies and discover why healthy home-cooking with fresh ingredients is the best.
So should we eat that last slice of cake? AQUILA finds out about some famously overmuch feasts from times past, and looks back to ancient Greece, when the Philosopher Epicurus advised his followers that humans have a duty to seek out pleasure and avoid pain, but to find peace we must learn to limit our overmuch desires. PLUS: meet the Sugar Glider, Australia’s most lovely animal!
“…Advanced & Philosophical,
Curious & Puzzling”
Richard Robinson, Brighton Science Festival
A Brilliant Read for 8 to 12-year-olds
AQUILA Magazine is not like the children’s publications you will see on the newsstand-it is more like a special club for inquisitive kids:
 A new topic every month including a feast of Science, Arts and General Knowledge.
 Witty an intelligent editorial that encourages children to engage with big ideas and become self-motivated learners.
 Every issue is packed with fun and challenges that will expand children’s interest and understanding beyond the school curriculum.
