Asian Geographic JUNIOR Issue 1 - 2016

In ASIAN Geographic Junior's "Living Legends" we take you on a journey of exploration through Asia's incredible cultural legacies; from ancient lost civilisations that mysteriously disappeared to ground-breaking inventions that have shaped the world as we know it today. Find out how to become a black-belt master of Kung Fu, let your mind soar with dragons, or discover the Asian monks that have gained real-life superpowers. With a mix of fantastic stories, activities and of course, never ending fun - we're about to explore Asia's exciting and enduring heritage in a way that's never been done before.

“Look deep into nature, and you will understand everything better” – Albert Einstein “Man is the only creature that refuses to be what he is” – Albert Camus “Brother, thy tail hangs down behind! This is the way of the Monkey-kind” – Rudyard Kipling “Just ‘cause you got the monkey off your back doesn’t mean the circus has left town” – George Carlin “To me, the beginning of wisdom is that we are, at once, both divine and primate” – Earon S. Davis “But Mommy said that monkeys don’t ever watch TV, that’s when I decided I’d rather just stay me” – C.J.

editor’s note

Hello boys and girls! Welcome to the first issue of 2016! This year, we’re going bananas over our primate friends because it’s the Chinese zodiac Year of the Monkey. We’re on to a new year, with a new team of writers, designers and salespeople (say hello and write to us, please!) We’re here to make this magazine even more exciting for you. This issue, we feature monkeys in all their various guises; we see how they are portrayed in movies and popular culture, we study their homes in the tropical rainforest and we check out other weird and wonderful mammals on the planet. Our Roving Reporter this month, Mikaela, also recounts her brush with a cheeky monkey in her hotel balcony.. Above all, let’s care for our planet so that the animals of the…

We are an international school and we love the themes and content in ASIAN Geographic JUNIOR We even use the magazine as our writing reference and research for projects. Perhaps you could focus on a different Asian country for every issue. Siti Nurhidayah, Singapore I’m a teacher and I buy ASIAN Geographic JUNIOR my son who is 8 years old.

In the future, we would love to read about issues that children in other worlds are facing, as well as important episodes in world history. It would also be great to have a free gift attached in every issue to attract more readers. Kah Leng, Malaysia I’m a parent and I buy ASIAN…

did you know?

The orangutans’ arms are longer than their legs. They have movable thumbs on their hands, and their fingers and toes can bend and curl around branches. Male orangutans make a special sound so that other males know where they are. This sound is known as a long call and it sounds like a roar. Orangutans eat about 400 different kinds of food, but mostly fruits and nuts. They love to eat durians, so much that during mast fruiting they gain weight. Male orangutans are ready to mate when they are about 15 years old. But often, females will not mate with a male until his cheek pads are fully grown, usually at about 20 years old. Male orangutans live alone because they do not get along with other males, while mother orangutans often live…
