  • Kind News™ magazine is an eight-page publication that helps children understand and respect animals and think about why treating animals and people with kindness matters. The magazine encourages both empathy and critical thinking in children by celebrating the human-animal bond and helps motivate children to take action to improve the lives of animals. Kind News uses engaging articles and short features to emphasize issues affecting animals and provide tips for  understanding animal behavior and  caring for pets. Its appealing design and interactive content help enhance children’s enjoyment of reading, as well as spark critical thinking and thoughtful discussion.

    Kind News is aligned with national teaching standards and can be easily integrated into school curriculum. The magazine is currently available in three reading levels: Primary (grades K-2), Junior (grades 3-4) and Senior (grades 5-6). Beginning in January of 2018, it will be available in two levels: Kind News™, Jr. (grades K-2) and Kind News™ (grades 3-6). Kind News can be ordered for an individual child (individual home subscription) or for a classroom. Also, starting in 2018, there will be five issues throughout the school year for both home and classroom subscriptions.

    • Since a year-long classroom subscription to Kind News is only $30.00, you could fund your classroom for one school year by requesting that each student bring in a small amount at the beginning of the year. For example, if you have a class with 30 students, you could ask that each student brings in $1.00.
    • Why not get your students directly involved by having a class bake sale, car wash or other fun activity that reaches your community? You may even be able to raise the money for your subscription by holding just one of these events.
    • Request to speak at your next meeting for your school’s PTO, PTA or parent organization to ask the organization to consider funding the magazine for your classroom or even your entire grade level. Be sure to explain that Kind News not only teaches students why treating people and animals with kindness matters, but can also be integrated into many subject areas to enhance students’ reading levels and knowledge of content-focused subjects such as Science.
