Issue 09


The Small but Mighty Issue, published in Summer 2018, reminds our kids that, no matter their size, they’re powerful beyond words. That’s the message behind our “Small but Mighty issue.” Inside, we’ll explore the power of tiny things: creatures, seeds, words, actions. You can learn a joke from comedian Sarah Silverman; make pickles with chef Alice Waters, owner of Chez Panisse; get inspired by labor organizer Dolores Huerta; write poetry (and build your own DIY poetry vending machine) with poet Eileen Myles; shoot hoops with WNBA point guard Ivory Latta; make art with Navajo weaver Barbara Teller Ornelas; go on a seed scavenger hunt with plant biologist Terri Long, Ph.D.;  take a buzzy bee quiz with entomologist Margarita Lopez-Uribe, Ph.D.; learn how 41 wolves changed Yellowstone’s entire ecosystem with wildlife biologist Kira Cassidy; read a short story by Newbery Honor winner Kathi Appelt; and so much more!  We’ve got a Gertrude Stein-inspired search and find, a secret code, a crossword puzzle, a fun spot-the-difference, a flower-drawing tutorial, word games, a tear-out poster, and easy how-tos for planting an eggshell garden, feeding butterflies and making your own beehive. This issue is 64-pages—100% fun, 0% ads.
