Why summer is a great time for circulation growth

  • Please parents because the Kid Scoop weekly page keeps their children’s brains happily engaged during the summer.
  • Please children with the Kid Scoop page full of puzzles and reading games that children have loved for 30 years in hundreds of local newspapers.
  • Please local educators, teachers and principals, because Kid Scoop helps children avoid the dreaded “learning loss” during the summer months out of school.
  • Please education-minded sponsors for Kid Scoop during the summer to help both parents and educators right now … and prepare for the school year, too.
