Accessible science is a Click away

Click magazine, Carus Publishing Company, Peru, IL; October 2003 issue reviewed here (January 2008 cover image shown).

Information is presented in a variety of formats in this science-oriented magazine for children.  Comics, photo essays, non-fiction stories, and a two-page spread on the sugar maple all focus on how plants and animals prepare for winter—well, with a story about a trip to the rainforest thrown in for good measure.

This would be a terrific first source of information for younger elementary aged children and I’d tie in a seasonal issue with a display about the season.  It would also be a good resource for science teachers and homeschoolers.  I’d also like to introduce science to reluctant readers and science-challenged kids with this magazine.
