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

Kidsville News!

Kidsville News!

Spring 2012 Newspaper
Ages: 5 - 13 yrs.

Kidsville News! is a monthly children's newspaper with all of the typical features you would expect in a paper-articles, recipes, movie reviews, an art column, plus activities such as word searches. There is also a monthly "Finish the Story" contest that encourages kids' creativity. The paper is published in more than 30 regions across 16 states. Most of the articles are of interest to a general children's audience, and each issue contains locally specific content as well, including a community calendar. The newspaper is free of charge, and is funded by family-friendly advertisements for local businesses. It's a nice resource for people in the areas served and others who are able to get their hands on an issue.
