The kids’ attention usually resides on Snapchat, Instagram and anything having to do with the phone in their hands. The New York Times thinks that those kids could find a print product to be interesting.
So, there is a reason for kids to share the Sunday New York Times with their parents. It is the new print-only section devoted to young readers. There is no fancy name to the new product. It’s simply The New York Times for Kids and it was introduced Sunday, May 14.
I welcome this and hope that kids of all ages will pay attention and become addicted.
The magazine-inspired section features articles, illustrations, and photography, and content includes sports, art, food, and science.
Teaching will be an important part of the new publication, which adds to the already rich multi-section Sunday New York Times. I am particularly happy to see that there are even tips for how to write an article. Never too early to get the young ones inspired to enter our craft.
Will keep an eye on future editions of this publication. The Times continues to create new products, and ,this one, for print and for kids, should be an inspiration to all publishers.
Another kids’ newspaper is in peril. A campaign is on to save it.
