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.

  • "Kind News was a wonderful addition to our room as part of our curriculum. The children not only loved reading about the animals and people that were featured, but the extension activities that we were able to do to go along with the articles. Kind News provided us with something different and engaging for the kids to practice their reading and writing skills. We are thankful to have such a great resource as part of our learning."

    Kristina, 2nd grade teacher, Alton Darby Elementary, Hilliard, Ohio
  • "This magazine provides an excellent resource to students. It offers students the extended opportunity to practice critical thinking skills with relevant and meaningful text. It promotes not only strong reading skills but builds globally compassionate individuals."

    Jody McClenny, Principal, Newport Elementary School, Newport, NC
  • "Kind News magazine is the perfect publication to offer our elementary age students since it is edited for various reading skill levels and contains information about animals appropriate for this age group. Our objective was to place the magazine in the hands of every student in our county and we are pleased to report we have accomplished the goal for the second year."

    Jim Marks, Executive Director, Brandt Animal Foundation, Beaufort, NC
