Kids Page

Whether you are an adult with children, a curious child, or a child-like adult, we think you will enjoy what the Kids Page has to offer! (We certainly enjoy putting it together each issue!)

On the Kids Page you will find a word search, a vocabulary word, an activity and more, all of which relate in some way to the topics discussed in each issue. Fun facts and creative learning are what this page is all about. It could be a Junior Forensic Scientist edition, a Junior Artist edition, a general page or some other focused edition we have yet to come up with, but they all have the same goal - sharing knowledge in a way that is entertaining and accessible.

And, as always, we're open to suggestions. If you think of something you'd like to see on the Kids Page in an upcoming issue, be sure to email
