KIDS DISCOVER was founded in 1991 by a publishing professional and devoted parent with a great idea. And today, more than 20 years later, we’re still a family-owned media company with a mission and a passion—educating and entertaining kids aged 7 to 12.
Mission: Developing Young Minds
Our mission is to expose kids to all the wonders in the world—science, space, nature, history and culture—in one easy-to-understand, beautiful publication. Our goal is to inspire kids, feed their natural curiosity, and instill a love of reading and learning in an environment filled with fun. We want to give them an all-important edge in school and in life.
Accessible, Age-Appropriate Topics
Every issue of KIDS DISCOVER delves deeply into a single topic. It’s packed with essential information and fun facts, and is engaging and easily assimilated. Full-color iconic photographs as well as custom-created illustrations and cartoons capture the imagination while word games, puzzles, and activities round out the experience, leaving kids eager to share their new knowledge and tackle the next issue of KIDS DISCOVER.
A Protected, Ad-Free Space
KIDS DISCOVER has never accepted advertising. All of our issues are ad-free, so kids can dive into subjects and develop new interests without the distraction or pressure of commercial messages.
Every issue of KIDS DISCOVER is supported by a top-ranked subject-matter expert recruited from prestigious universities and museums—from Columbia University, Princeton and Holy Cross College to the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum, the American Museum of Natural History and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A loyal team of editors, writers, designers and illustrators have been working together from the beginning—they form the KIDS DISCOVER "family" and are responsible for the unique combination of learning, wit and fun that makes us what we are.
KIDS DISCOVER has been recognized by its peers in education and media—having won the Parents’ Choice Gold Award, the EdPress Golden Lamp Award and the AEP Distinguished Achievement Award.
Respected and Loved by Parents, Teachers, Homeschoolers & Librarians
We started 20 years ago with an inspired idea. Today, more than 150,000 families subscribe to KIDS DISCOVER at home and over 30,000 schools nationwide use it in their classrooms. Our commitment remains the same today as on the day we launched: to turn curious kids into lifelong learners.
