Princess A and Princess G are very interested in science and just love getting mail. I know they will be so excited when our first issue of Know magazine arrives. Meanwhile I was able to download an issue and they loved it. The magazine is geared toward children 6 to 9, but Princess G is only 5 and she really likes it too. I did have to read the magazine to her unlike Princess A who can read it by herself. The issue we read had a lot on shapes and shapes you see everyday. Princess G actually had a homework assignment about shapes and the magazine fit in perfectly with the lesson. Each issue has lots of information and on many different subjects. My girls liked learning about the glass frog (you can see through the skin to the gut) and about starfish. Touching starfish at our local zoo s always a highlight so they liked learning more about them. Know magazine is full of interesting facts and each one is just a small taste so that if it sparks your child's imagination you can learn more. Both of the girls want to go to our local library and pick up some books on origami, sea creatures and Jupiter. The magazine also has a caption contest and a section where readers art can be sent in and printed in the magazine. The girl also really liked the try at home string art. We have not tried it yet but I am sure we will by the end of the weekend. If you have kids who are curious about the world around us and science or a kid you want to get interested in those things this Know magazine is great, maybe even a great gift for Christmas (when I was a kid my grandparents always liked getting us a magazine subscription and I would of loved this back then.) My girls are looking forward to their first issue and your kids probably will too.
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Mad Science and received the products necessary to facilitate my review. In addition, I received a gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate.
