《World Children—Forever Young》
World Children—Forever Young is a tribute to the pioneer Chinese children’s periodical World Children. This vibrant book brings readers through a journey 65 years back in time to where World Children was a treasured companion of many young readers.
Established at a time when the Chinese language was flourishing in Southeast Asia, World Children was the pioneer Chinese youth publication. The publisher and editorial team’s vision was to create a publication which the children of Southeast Asia could call their own. Its coloured pages were a novelty at that time and a hit with its young readers.
CSCF has put together a 112-page tribute to this much-loved publication which includes selected covers and contents of the magazine. We hope that World Children—Forever Young will bring back beautiful memories for its readers.
