Good Clean Site

It shows great tween news.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Readers will find engaging, reliable news coverage on TweenTribune, but the site is designed for educators to use in schools, and kids who aren't part of a class can't post comments. Still, it's a welcome change reading online comments that are, for the most part, thoughtful and respectful. TweenTribune also scores points for a user-friendly design that's simple but appealing.

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.
