Hey Curious Kids!
Are you ready for the brand new Supernova Vol 10.2? Wow, what a busy and jam-packed year it has been! Our Supernova team has achieved so many great things – like publishing our 56th magazine – and celebrated many wonderful milestones – like Supernova’s 10th birthday!
When the days and weeks get so busy, it’s hard to take a moment to look back and appreciate all of the great things that you have achieved. But, it’s super important! Not only will it motivate you to keep succeeding, but it reminds you to be proud of yourself. Being proud of yourself can help you feel content and grateful, and usually makes you good at motivating others. We know this new issue of Supernova will keep you entertained as we wrap up 2021. And now that it’s the holidays, what more could you need from the best kids’ mag in the universe?
