TOS Review: Kid Scoop - The Reluctant Reader Solution

Title: Kid Scoop
Price: $97

In my household I have one reluctant reader and one avid reader.  There are only a few things I can get my reluctant reader interested enough in to read past the cover.  Kid Scoop, however, has sparked interest in both my daughters. They were eagar to dive in and continually wanted more. 

The Kids Scoop News (12 monthly digital magazine issues) are full of different fun facts, experiments, games, puzzles, articles, and more.  Each issue is inspired by current holidays, events, etc. It is best to print each issue, which will allow your child to complete the hands0on activities. However, if you wish, you can view each issue online by simply scrolling through the pages with a click of your mouse. You also have the option to hear the different articles.
