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



Spring 2018 Magazines
Ages: 9 - 13 yrs.
Publisher: Bayard Canada
Newsstand Price: $5.25
Subscription Price: $34.95 / 10 Issues

Geared to OwlKids' older audience—tweens and young teens—and shaped around STEM subjects, this magazine, like its publications for younger children, respects its audience with a zippy mix of entertaining and thoughtful features. These are as diverse as a multifaceted look at virtual reality (what it is, how it is used, the gear required, an interview with a VR game developer), a tour of the scientific research ship Amundsen, "Star Wars" "movie magic," and an introduction to a bat-inspired robot and other "bio bots" inspired by nature. The jam-packed, colorful content draws the eye to well-conceived trivia pages, puzzles, comics, quizzes, contests, and regular reader generated offerings. (A subscription to the magazine now includes a biweekly OWLconnected eMag focusing on current events.)
