Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Although isn't your average newspaper, it can give kids some idea of how traditional journalism works, and curating content works in a similar way to how many online publications now function. may be helpful for kids who really want to keep up on a particular subject, but the site can be a bit finicky and requires a lot of adjustment to produce the right content.

Overall, it's a novel and interesting way for kids to gather and curate informaiton on the Web. However, the "Staff Picks" are kind of odd; are "Equestrian Express" and "NCIS Fanatic" really the best examples has to offer? You also have to be careful about which sources you choose, as your paper will continue to draw from those sites even if their scopes change. A site may have an article on Harry Potter one day, but the next day it may have an article on something entirely different -- your paper doesn't know the difference and will populate with whatever content is new.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
