My daughter is hooked lol

Really nothing like it for this age group....entertainment with substance. Will say if your child needs a news article site for school (i.e. time for kids, etc) this may not be it. If looking for a place your kids will visit on their own that's not games or endless youtube videos, this is the site.

Is It Any Good?

Scribble Scoop is written in an engaging, kid-friendly style and has a good touch of lightness and silliness. Kids are quite likely to be drawn to the design, the writing, and most of the blog topics. Content value and appropriateness, however, is uneven. Some posts are instructional (new vocabulary), inspiring (interesting art, photography, or an empowering video of a 9-year-old kid making a rousing speech to save his school), curiosity-provoking (cool animals and natural phenomena), or brain-teasing (puzzles). All the posts are short snapshots or tidbits; for these kinds of posts, it would be nice to have a bit more meat, or at least links, for kids to explore more.

A good portion of content is simple but harmless entertainment or "news," such as the announcement that illustrated versions of the Harry Potter books will soon be available. Then again, there's a lot of fluff and even some content that walks the line of being appropriate. Parents will have to cruise around a bit themselves to decide whether this site is right for their kids.

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.
