Any children’s magazine has to be able to capture a child’s interest and keep hold of it. New magazine Animal Planet does just that. It describes itself as action-packed and it certainly is.
The magazine feels and looks exciting – it’s teeming with so much life and diversity that you feel like you’re on an actual adventure.
Like the Animal Planet TV channel, the magazine promotes a desire to explore and discover by helping children understand and appreciate the wonders of the natural world around them.
It asks and invites big questions and gets readers to think like professional naturalists and behave like conservationists. Every page is enlightening and inspirational, encouraging children to be attentive, present, mindful and watchful.
The content is compelling and enables children to get face-to-face with the animal kingdom, learn lots of facts, complete puzzles, engage with challenges and experiment.
The colourful photographs used throughout are simply breathtaking. Key concepts and information are presented in memorable ways and nothing is dumbed down. Instead, it’s written in an age-appropriate format that is spot-on.
A children’s magazine has got to have a big offering and Animal Planet delivers plenty on every page, with opportunities to learn, investigate, participate and win prizes.
There are plenty of wildlife educators and experts on hand to share their knowledge and answer questions, including Ben Fogle, Michaela Strachan, Dr Jess French and Ellie Harrison.
There is also a regular spotlight on a wildlife personality. In the first issue, this is YouTuber and Animal Planet TV host Coyote Peterson.
Children will also enjoy a fun comic featuring Lily and Leo Dolittle (who can, of course, talk to the animals), important wildlife days to remember, ways to save the planet, reviews, animal profiles and a page devoted to readers themselves.
Animal Planet magazine helps children seek deeper awareness, appreciate how life fits together, build their knowledge, change their field of vision and open their minds.
It teaches young people that there is no such thing as a stupid question.
At just £40 a year for a school subscription, this adrenaline-fuelled magazine is perfect for the classroom and home learning.
You’re looking for a magazine crammed with amazing animals, conservation, environmental science, pets, experts and activities galore.
