What do Jacques Cousteau, Rachel Carson and Jesse Owens have in common? Young readers of Honest History magazine will recognize these famous names from the feature stories of the latest issues. With beautifully designed stories and illustrations, this independent children’s magazine is celebrating its second anniversary issue on September 1, 2020. And it’s the ideal supplement to a new school year of at-home learning.
With back-to-school rapidly approaching, Honest History offers subscriptions ($69.99 annually) and single issues ($17.95 each) created for kids ages 6 to 12 years old. Each content-packed issue invites historians-in-the-making to explore fascinating tales, from a war of the (electric) currents to the race to space. Every issue is crafted to complement the others, broadening a youngster’s understanding of history and encouraging kids to do their own research beyond the pages. The amazing competition between scientist Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison in Issue Three gives a great foundation for appreciating an interview with a NASA astronaut in Issue Five.
Each magazine edition overflows with fun, DIY crafts and activities to bring history to life. Kids might solve a puzzle using Morse Code or pore over a blueprint of the Space Shuttle. The themed issues delve into a topic typically not covered in an elementary or middle school textbook. Imagine the dinnertime conversations after a day spent learning The Language of Espionage from Issue 6!
ABOUT HONEST HISTORY
Honest History is a beautifully designed magazine with stories that spark curiosity and imagination in children. We’ve made it our mission to find stories that are lesser known in modern classrooms and teach lessons that can be applied to our everyday lives. Each issue is printed on high-quality paper with a soft-touch cover that we’d like to describe but must be experienced. Suffice it to say, this is a magazine you will enjoy over and over again!

Thank you Kids Stuff PR and Honest History Magazine for sending us these three issues for personal review. My boys started remote learning 1st grade this year, and these magazines came at the perfect time. We have not finished them all, but we did finish the special Anniversary issue. I read a couple pages a day, and while normally my boys would be bored, they actually were very interested in this. As a parent, I loved the History that it taught, I loved the Illustrations, and the included fun things like posters and stickers. I also appreciated the soft feel cover, and the attention to details. I think these are magazine/soft cover books that we will keep for a very long time.
