Eco Kids Planet is informative, appealingly written, beautifully designed and sturdy. The monthly themes are well chosen for their interest and significance, and each theme is thoughtfully explored through a variety of angles, so that children who might pick up the magazine because they want to read about the puma on the cover might end up being fascinated to learn about the ancient Incan cosmology of three worlds, each represented by a different animal. The contests are unusually creative, and the interactive activities are helpfully scattered throughout, rather than all being confined to the end as they often are in magazines.... Young readers who have any interest in the environment will be delighted and fascinated by this beautiful magazine. Read full review
Eco Kids Planet feels less like a magazine and more like a series of activity books. Each issue of the advertising-free publication focuses on a different biome: sample issues included the African Savannah, the African Congo Rainforest, the Eastern Himalayas, and India. The heavy-duty pages (made from environmentally-friendly paper and inks) are meant to be read, saved, and re-read. The magazine focuses on both the animals and the land they inhabit. Many articles are styled as interviews or clips from notebooks, making them easy to read at a glance and not so overwhelming for elementary school readers. Each issue features craft projects, puzzles, and science activities.
Eco Kids planet is a new monthly magazine for children but with a bit of a difference – targeted at children aged around 7 to 12 years old, Eco Kids Planet is a factual magazine packed full of science and nature facts, activities and games. I think it's an excellent magazine which has the balance between education and fun for this age group just about right.
I love finding good stuff. I think it’s the feeling ‘normal’ women get when they find a killer pair of shoes or a designer dress at a bargain price – a bit of a rush, excitement and sheer joy. That’s how I feel when I find something that I think is just straight up GOOD. And that’s how I feel about the Eco Kids Planet magazine.
When I received a bundle of magazines in the post, I was immediately impressed by the amazing vibrant photographs on the cover of every edition, as well as the high quality feel and look of the publication. It turned out that was only the start of the Eco Kids journey!
