Young histories will LOVE Honest History magazine with its beautifully designed stories and illustrations making history interesting and fun! This independent children’s magazine just celebrated its second anniversary issue on September 1, 2020. My 11 and 8 year old daughters really enjoy magazines and they have instantly become fans of Honest History and thus so have I!
Honest History offers subscriptions and single issues and is created for kids ages 6 to 12 years old. Each content-packed issue invites historians-in-the-making to explore fascinating tales, from a war of the (electric) currents to the race to space. Every issue is crafted to complement the others, broadening a youngster’s understanding of history and encouraging kids to do their own research beyond the pages. The amazing competition between scientist Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison in Issue Three gives a great foundation for appreciating an interview with a NASA astronaut in Issue Five.
Each magazine edition overflows with fun, DIY crafts and activities to bring history to life. Kids can even learn through DIY experiments suggested within the pages like one on electricity! The themed issues dive into a topic typically not covered in an elementary or middle school textbook which is what makes the stories that much more interesting since often times it is the first time your child will have heard about the topic at hand!
Honest History is a beautifully designed magazine and the type of magazine you want to keep on the shelf and go back to again and again. Each issue is printed on high-quality paper with a soft-touch cover that makes it feel so much nicer than "just a magazine." Use Honest History magazine to spark your child's curiosity and in these times when kids might be home more than ever it is ever important to find something that interests them in the pages of good literature! I personally think a subscription would make a most excellent Christmas gift this holiday season as well!
