Kazoo is a new kind of quarterly print magazine for girls, ages 5 to 10—one that inspires them to be strong, smart, fierce and, above all, true to themselves.

A mom once asked me, “If I lift up my daughter, what will happen to my son?” I’m often asked variations of this question, and have struggled w how to answer this, because I think it’s not a valid question. Friend of Kazoo, @roxanegay74, does it perfectly here in a recent interview on #QandA. We’ve clipped it here but encourage you to find the whole and watch it. (If you don’t already, follow @rgay on twitter, and buy all of her books, too.) #badfeminist #kazoomagazine #roxanegay

One year ago, young people took to the streets to #marchforourlives. They energized our nation—and inspired the back cover of Kazoo’s Issue 10: #thekidswillwin. Now, MFOL chapters have launched everywhere, and kids are leading the charge against gun violence and healing our nation. We stand w them, today and always.

Incredible turnout today!! According to 350.org we have already passed way over one million students on school strike for the climate today. In over 2000 places in 125 countries on all continents. And we have only just started!! #fridaysforfuture #schoolstrike4climate #climatestrike ( picture from Prague, Czech Republic)

So last night we became the first kids magazine in history to win a National Magazine Award, which is kind of like the Oscars for magazines! (I know! I’m still kind of hyperventilating.) I was/am so excited I didn’t even get to finish my acceptance speech. So, here goes:
I never had a magazine like Kazoo when I was a little girl. And I know I would have LOVED IT. And, I’m so happy to have made one for my daughters to read and enjoy. But beyond that, I want to thank every little reader we have. When I’m working non-stop, worried about deadlines, and our entire kitchen table is covered with marbles and cardboard and craft sticks for our next experiment, I think about our readers, running to the mailbox or stumbling upon us in the bookstore, and I think about what we are giving them today--these smart, fierce, strong girls--and who they will grow up to be, and how they will change the world. I thank you. This award is for each of you. ❤️❤️❤️ Xo, Erin

You live in a house in a town in a country on a planet called Earth. Our planet, along with seven others and our sun, makes up our solar system. Our solar system orbits the center of our galaxy, the Milky Way, which contains tens of billions other solar systems. If you could see our galaxy from above, you’d notice a spiral shape much like the one you can find in your very own fingerprint. There is so much out there to discover, and it’s all waiting for you. /// This is page 2 of our Explorers Issue #12, just out now. /// #kazoomagazine #makesomenoise #youarehere #mondaymotivation

How much do you love @theellenshow? She’s been an inspiration to me, and having met and interviewed her 3x before (for @selfmagazine and @goodhousekeeping) I can attest that she’s just as kind, thoughtful and funny as you might expect. It’s hard to imagine now, given her success, that when she first came out as gay (22 years ago!), she was banished from Hollywood for many years. (Even @LauraDern, who played her girlfriend in the famous coming out episode, was suddenly unable to get work because of her guest role on the show.) We have come so far since then, thanks in large part to Ellen’s own courage and perseverance, and that’s why we asked her to be a part of our Happy issue (#11). She understands that joy comes from being true to yourself, and if that’s the only lesson our young readers take away from the entire 64-page issue, then we’ll be proud—like, so proud that we might just have to get up and dance. Thank you, @theellenshow, for being you! xox 🙌🙌🙌/// Also thanks to artist @paigebraddock, Eisner-nominated cartoonist & creator of #janesworld, one of the first, & longest running, lgbt comic strips. When we planned this maze for Ellen, we knew Paige had to be the artist, and we’re so thrilled she agreed. 👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩🏳️‍🌈/// Finally, you may have heard about a huge controversy w other kids magazines refusing to acknowledge lgbt ppl or families (until they were pressured into doing so) and we are just really proud to have presented Ellen’s whole story, including her coming-out and marriage to @portiaderossi😍, in this maze. As she says: “Dear Noisemakers: there is only one of you, so be the best you that you can be!” ❤️❤️❤️/// #kazoomagazine #ellendegeneres #bekindtooneanother #lgbtbooksforkids #lgbtally #lovewins #lovewillwin

We were THRILLED to have Shonda Rhimes talk to us for Kazoo’s issue #3 about how to build a story and the great power of words. Her advice: “A good story can educate. A good story can heal. A good story can make you feel less alone. A good story can change minds. A good story can give you courage.” 🙌 Our advice: Go follow @shondarhimes on twitter for gems like these and congratulate her for having the longest running prime-time medical show ever after #greysanatomy airs on Thursday night. #kazoomagazine #bhm #blackherstorymonth #shondarhimes #iamthecandy #shondaland @byshondaland

Quick survey: Do you guys know about #geocaching? Show of hands in the comments. It’s basically a secret worldwide treasure hunt, and the girls and I are obsessed. We found 🏆🏆🏆🏆 caches (four!) in @prospectpark this morning and left Kazoo stickers in all of them. #geocache #geocacher #geocaching #geocachenyc #geocachebklyn #tftc

When we asked bestselling author Jacqueline Woodson if she would be a part of our very first issue, she agreed, and (in true Jackie-form) she used part of her interview to lift-up young Marley Dias, founder of #1000blackgirlbooks. We ❤️ and 🙌 them both. @iammarleydavis @jacqueline_woodson

02/22/2019

At Kazoo, we want every month to be #blackhistorymonth. (TBH, we feel the same about #womenshistorymonth and #gaypridemonth too.) But the world is not always what we want it to be. (And online this month—particularly on twitter [Why are we on twitter again?]—it’s been what we might call a sh*tshow, if we could say such a thing at a kids magazine.) So, we want to take the final week of February to highlight the amazing African-American and black women worldwide, who have inspired all of our readers at Kazoo. Follow along for the rest of the month (and beyond) for some major inspo. / / /
Beyonce, Rihanna, Issa Rae, Lupita Nyong’o, Tiffany Haddish, Zendaya, Laverne Cox. They all made the covers of the big September issues of the fashion magazines this year, prompting USA Today to declare September 2018 a month of #blackgirlmagic. We LOVED every cover (Beyoncé + 💐🌸🌼🌺= 😍😍😍), but we also wish that featuring black women wasn’t so unusual that it’s a newsworthy event. Think about it: If representation matters so much for adults, imagine what it means to kids. The 12th issue of Kazoo is on its way to subscribers now, and our covergirls are drawn in comic-form. This one is based on a childhood photo of a famous black woman. In fact, half of all of our covers to date feature black girls front and center, right where they should be. Which cover has been your favorite? And can you guess who we based our covergirl on for issue #12? Check back later this week to find out!

When @kazoomagazine asked me to write a short story for their Explorers issue, I was thrilled for the opportunity. My daughters and I love their girl power, advertisement-free, gorgeously printed magazine designed for girls ages 5-12. They have amazing craft ideas, including an epic poetry vending machine which we made last year and now force all our visitors to partake in. The Explorers issue also features @cherylstrayed, @lucyknisley, @polarann, @milkmade, @josielong, @lubellwoo, @naomifranq, @mirabartok17, @raewynngrant, @darwinfound, +more! Head to their website, www.kazoomagazine.com to subscribe in time to receive the Explorers issue, out next month! 🌍💫💕

Do you remember reading the story about Shaba, the baby elephant, in our Happy Issue? Reteti Elephant Sanctuary Community United for Elephants co-founder @katie.rowe climbed into a stack of tires in baby Shaba’s stable and talked to her for hours and hours until Shaba trusted her enough to accept a bottle. It was Shaba’s first drink in the 5 days since she lost her mom to poachers. Since then, Shaba has become the mother figure to all of Reteti’s other orphaned baby elephants. Here she is, saying hi. If you have a few minutes, head over to Reteti Elephant Sanctuary Community United for Elephants and watch some vids of baby 🐘 drinking from 🍼s. (They drink 2 liters every 3 hours around the clock.) As Katie says, “We are all connected, and we must look after each other.” ❤️❤️❤️ #Repost Reteti Elephant Sanctuary Community United for Elephants with @get_repost #kazoomagazine ・・・
“Hello, everyone!” says Shaba. Hope you're having a wonderful day!
