The magazine for kids about animals

RedRover adopted Kind News magazine from The Humane Society of United States (HSUS) in early 2017. Created for K-6 students, Kind News teaches kids to care for animals. Engaging articles, colorful illustrations, activities and games inspire readers to explore the relationship between people and animals and develop the knowledge and skills necessary for empathy.

Testimonials
  • Thurston County Humane Society has been sponsoring Kind News for 20 years! The students absolutely love these magazines. They help them understand and respect animals and encourage empathy and critical thinking. Every year we budget for this educational effort!

    Rita Willits, Secretary-Treasurer, Thurston County Humane Society, Olympia, WA
  • "For over 15 years, PAWS has sponsored Kind News as a principal part of our humane education mission - we feel it’s very important to reach and teach children at an early age to learn and practice caring plus respect for all animals. "

    Dianne Block, PAWS Humane Society, Rockford, IL
  • "The kids look forward to [Kind News magazines] as we have many animal lovers in class. Kids and animals, they go hand in hand. I use these in class during our Language Arts time and it is a relaxed setting where kids can read the magazine and then casually chat about what they have learned, or make connections to what they have read. These kids are our future leaders and this magazine can plant the seeds for future volunteerism, activism, or simply provide awareness."

    Stephanie, 2nd grade teacher, Scioto Darby Elementary, Hilliard, OH
