Parents' Choice Foundation: Reviewing Children's Media Since 1978



Spring 2010 Magazines
Ages: 9 - 12 yrs.
Publisher: Bayard
Subscription Price: $87.80 / 10 Issues
Discovery Box presents educational material in an engaging, graphical format that brings history to life. Each issue of this digest-sized publication is jam-packed with interesting information on world history, science and animals, as well as entertaining activities and a serialized comic. A gatefold page opens up to a diagram that explores the featured subject of that issue (hyenas hunting on the Savannah, the history of bicycles, the Statue of Liberty). Excellent photography, top-notch illustration and high-quality printing complement the strong content.

Editor's Note: Our only reservation is the high price. However, this concern is somewhat mitigated by the overall excellence and quality of the publication.
