NYT for Kids

This week, we are also pleased to share the special print-only NYT for Kids by special arrangement with The New York Times. This section is only published the last Sunday of the month. According to the Editor's note on the cover, "This section should not be read by grown-ups." We'll read it anyway, of course. We encourage you to read it too, particularly the interview with the editor of the mini-crosswords and articles on climate change, the elections, getting a smartphone for a ten-year-old and more. The .pdf of NYT for Kids is no longer available on our website. (It was available until Noon ET through a special arrangement with The New York Times. We will be posting video of our review of NYT for Kids later today. If you have any questions, please contact our Executive Producer, Neil Parekh, via neil@digimentors.group.) Amber Williams, Editorial Director of NYT for Kids, was a guest on our show in June 2022.
