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.
