This lively edutainment magazine begins with a regular comic strip welcome from host characters Chick and Dee, setting the tone for pages filled with interactive features-puzzles, brain teasers, contests, recipes, crafts, and experiments. Each issue puts an animal in a wide-ranging spotlight; there are profiles of people and places, a "You Asked" column answering reader-submitted questions, and readers' book reviews and photos showing readers' artwork and their completed, chickadee-inspired crafts and experiments. A sampling of past features: a global tour of kids' breakfasts, "Wacky [and informative] Facts" about the less polite aspects of body functions, tips for a "super sleepover," an activity-based board game geared to spring break, and a tongue-in-cheek April Fool's multiple choice quiz asking readers to discern the one made-up answer from the true facts given for each real-life question.
