The Young Scientists – Best Science Comic Magazine For Kids

Interesting Storyline And Illustrations

Apt for kids in the age group 4 – 13 years, this science comic magazine is power packed with interesting science and general knowledge concepts for kids. From distant planets and flying fish to matters as mundane as recycling stuff and keeping your surroundings clean, this magazine discusses it all. Replete with eye-catching, beautiful illustrations, it explains fascinating science concepts to kids through colorful cartoons supported by a related story line and easy to comprehend language.

Vocabulary And Practical Science Well Explained

Usually, adults and children are lazy to find meaning for difficult words. In this magazine, vocabulary for difficult words is provided at the bottom of the page. In addition, there is a ‘science scoop’, which adds value to the storyline. Besides science concepts, the magazine gives information related to “practical science”. For e.g., How to remove the bubble gum that is stuck to your dress? If an insect gets into your ears, then how do you get it out?”

Attracts Attention Instantly

In this age of smart phones and speedy internet, kids tend to key in their queries and get precise, to-the-point answers. They do not have the patience to read huge encyclopedias and general knowledge books. However, ‘The Young Scientists’ grabs their attention instantly. Children would prefer reading this science comic magazine over a huge, monotonous and sleep inducing encyclopedia with lots of text. In fact, this magazine works really well for kids with low attention spans. Children are able to recollect the concepts and apply later when they want. It is never boring to read the magazine repeatedly.
