Sports Illustrated for Kids

Sports Illustrated for Kids
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars

Category: Magazine

Personal Evaluation: Wow, I thought Kids Discover was busy! This is packed with information in a different way – more of a “read what jumps out at you and then go back for more” way. I was happy to see two out of the 9 athlete trading cards were women, though the majority of the features focuses on men and the magazine in general seemed geared toward boys.

What might interest children: Kids would probably rather get this as a subscription if they can because there are posters and athlete trading cards to pull out that you *should* leave in the library’s copy, but it can be a good way for a kid or their parent to give the magazine a trial run to see if it’s something they’re interested in. This is a monthly magazine and I wonder if it’s becoming obsolete as sports change minute-by-minute and lots more information is available online.
