National Geographic Kids magazine's tagline is "Dare to Explore," and it does a wonderful job introducing children to the many natural wonders and remote areas of the planet. Additionally, the magazine shines a light on the secrets of the everyday modern world. In any given issue, a reader might follow a troop of chacma baboons as they attempt to cross a river in Botswana, then read about a see-through TV, and finish off learning fun facts about pizza. The abundant photos, a National Geographic signature, are vivid and eye-catching. Regular features include crafts, jokes, quizzes, comics, contests and more. This is an engaging way for even reluctant readers to learn about the world.
