Ask is a magazine devoted to bringing the arts and sciences to children between the ages of seven and ten in ways that are both engaging and developmentally appropriate. Included in the magazine are engaging nonfiction articles on mainly scientific topics, activities presenting opportunities for learning, and artful, informative comic strips and other visual media.
Ask is known well for publishing engaging nonfiction articles on mainly scientific topics. One writer, combining images and easy-to-digest facts, sets out to teach young readers “Why Animals Love to Play.” Can you think of an eight year-old child who cannot relate to that?
Each issue of Ask contains activities presenting opportunities for learning. One such activity allows children to determine whether they have “musical brains” by completing a number of simple activities. Another relates what it’s really like to undergo a school physical at the nurse’s office, rumor-free.
Readers of Ask are treated o artful and informative comic strips and other visual media. One comic appearing in a recent issue features a determined cat trying to catch a meal in the form of an even more determined mouse. Before they can know it, young readers learn about the cat’s excellent vision, agility, and sense of smell.
