This has great relevance to our social and professional lives.

Our Little Earth is an electronic newspaper that helps its readers learn about the world through coverage of international current events. News is presented using language that is easy to understand, even for our young readers. Each story provides background information as well, so that the reader can appreciate the context and relevance of the event.

We are very sensitive about our young readers. Our content never contains advertisements. We make sure we present unbiased views of events, and that the language used is child-safe.”(Our Little Earth)
