National Geographic Kids
National Geographic Kids magazine provides readers with a periodical that writes about animals, events, and other interesting topics that would interest a kid. It begins with a table of contents that highlights four excusive and unique articles to each issue. Then it lists the “departments” of the magazine, such as Weird but True, Amazing Animals, Cool Inventions, Bet You Didn’t Know, Guinness World Records, and Fun Stuff. Layered into the departments, are some additional sections that don’t necessarily occur in each magazine.
The four main articles are written in a graphics form with photographs labeled with large boxes of lengthy captions. The backgrounds on the pages are very bright and exciting to keep the reader interested in turning the pages to read some more. Other nonfiction text features are utilized to enhance the pages, such as diagrams, labels, maps, and headers. Some of the articles are written in paragraph form with additional facts highlighted in color. The various writing styles in this magazine provide more material to be accessed by kids with various reading levels.
