This is our 2nd summer of keeping a small garden & we’re finally getting the hang of cherry tomatoes. 🍅🍅🍅 Our 6 yo loves to help pick ‘em. (Our 10 yo loves to help eat ‘em!) We heed the advice from Brooke Bridges of @soulfirefarm, “When you tend to something & care for it every day, it makes every bite even more delicious because you remember the hard work that helped it grow.” (You can find our full interview w Farmer Brooke in our DIY issue, and you can find fresh tomatoes at your local farm stand.) #kazoomagazine #kazoodiy #soulfirefarm #farmergirl #gardeningwithkids #cherrytomatoes🍅

😍 /// Posted @withregram • @amyspencerla Baby’s first magazine subscription! 👏🏼 I have been a huge fan of @kazoomagazine since long before I had a daughter to read it — and I *know* that by the time Viv is old enough to appreciate it, she’ll want a stockpile of back issues to enjoy!

For context: The magazine was created “for girls who like to make noise” by a former colleague of mine and all around great human, Erin Bried. As their site says, “Kazoo celebrates girls, ages 5 to 12, for being strong, smart, fierce and true to themselves.” They pack every 64-page, ad-free issue with science, art, comics, games, crafts, recipes, stories and inspiration. And they feature content contributed by strong female noisemakers from astronauts to activists to Supreme Court Justices; from Misty Copeland to Jane Goodall to Shonda Rhimes.

Kazoo is so good that it was nominated this year for the coveted National Magazine Award for General Excellence—in the same category as The Harvard Business Review, Scientific American, Audubon and Texas Monthly. And it won the award in 2019! So all of this is to say: I am amped for Viv about this subscription! And if you have a girl or know a girl who would appreciate a magazine like this, grab one for her, too. ✨#kazoomagazine

DO YOU HAVE THIS??? Five years ago, we launched Kazoo w this issue. (Did we go overboard on cover lines? Mayyyybe.) We only printed 7,000 copies & very quickly sold out. It ran at fewer pages than we print now &, looking back, there are things we might have changed. 😬 But @mickalenethomas @diananyad @alisonbechdel @maya @jacqueline_woodson @cronindoreen @minwadhwa @lanewyorkina @lisacongdon @lucyknisley @libbyvanderploeg and other extremely accomplished women generously gave us their time to help us hit the ground running. If you have a copy of Kazoo #1, it’s now a collectors’ item. We can’t believe it’s been 5 years! 🎂(Most statistics show that by the end of the second year, 30% of businesses will fail. By the end of the 5th year, about half will. It’s our hope that our readers who got this 1st issue will be able to share Kazoo w their own kids one day.) Here’s to the next 5 years! Since we are ad-free all thanks to @kickstarter 🙌 and our earliest subscribers. 🙏 THANK YOU!!! #kazoomagazine #independentmedia #smallbusiness #supportsmallbusiness #supportindiemedia #happybirthday #fiveyears #wedidit #letskeepgoing

The first time another kid on the playground asked about our family, my oldest daughter explained, matter-of-factly, “I have 2 moms.” (She was maybe 3yo at that time.) I waited nearby, anxiously. The kid thought about it for a moment and then yelled back, wide eyed, “I WISH I HAD 100 MOMS!” #happypridemonth🌈 from your pals at Kazoo! We love you. #lovemakesafamily

i ordered your magazine on november 7. i still haven't heard anything. i have emailed and not received a reply.
I ordered your magazine over 6 weeks ago and haven't heard anything.
Hello, I've tried to contact your sales Department about a purchase I did but nobody has answered any of my emails. Can you help me out please?
Hi Kazoo magazine -- I LOVE what you folks are all about, and regularly encourage libraries, my dentist office, etc to subscribe. I'm just starting to do Live Story & Music sessions (Live with Story Laurie) on Zoom, and will certainly be plugging you there, too!
My 6 year old niece loooooooves the subscription I got her for Christmas. I can’t wait until my daughter is older and we can get one for her too! Thanks for making such an awesome magazine!
Hi, do you do a digital magazine as well?
So, I didn’t have a child only so that I could order this magazine... but here I am with a 6 month old daughter and is it too early to get her a subscription?! 🤪
My daughter cut out some of your "noisy" affirmations and put them on her mirror. :)
Sadly I have bought two subscriptions to be sent to Australia but never received so very disappointed and require follow up please!!
A girl making some noise
This amazing noisemaker woke with the inspiration to make Mollie Katzen’s Berry Soup for the whole family for a lovely weekend breakfast. So fun! And yummy!! We had fresh cherries, so she added those to the mix of berries and we didn’t have orange juice so she substituted a power fruit juice mix with berries, pomegranates, and cherries and it was delish. Thanks for being at our table with us!
I have b/g twins who will be nine in June. Have to say that my son is the one who always grabs Kazoo when it arrives . . . ☺️
