NEWSFLASH: Seeing any story without proper context is like looking at the entire world through a peephole. Swipe for the full picture. ➡️ Our kids spend so much time on screens (even at school), so teaching them media literacy is more important than ever. In our Action issue, we remind readers that when you hear a story that sounds especially scary or surprising, ask 3 big questions: 1) Who is telling this story? 2) Why am I hearing this story now? 3) Who or what is missing from this story? Only by digging a little deeper can you respond in a smart way. Then we asked @cnn’s @lisalingstagram to drop in & share her best advice: “Always ask questions. And try to be aware of what’s happening around you and in the world. You’ll really be able to add to the conversation when you’re aware.” (See the full “The Fox’s News” feature in Kazoo 10, the Action issue, available in our shop. Then, share with your old high school pals on Facebook. 😉) #kazoomagazine #medialiteracy #teachingmedialiteracy

Turns out that painting the portrait of @michelleobama is only one amazing thing about artist Amy Sherald’s remarkable life. She also had a heart transplant at age 39 that gave her a new chance at life—and art. ❤️ She went on to paint beautiful pictures of Black people like her, not just famous folks, but everyday people, to share their stories. If a stranger caught her eye, she’d ask to paint them. 🖼 Eventually her work caught First Lady Michelle Obama’s eye, & she asked @asherald to paint her official portrait. It was a very big deal. 😍 In our maze in issue #23, readers can follow along to find out how they too can create something that lasts forever. Amy told our readers: “Dear Noisemakers, The world is full of quitters. If you don’t give up on putting your artwork in the world, you’ll eventually rise to the top.” 💪🏾✨🏆 Amy’s artwork now hangs in some of the world’s biggest museums & we’re thrilled to share her story in our National Magazine award-finalist Art issue #23, now available in our shop. // #kazoomagazine #kazoo23 #obamaportraits #michelleobamaportrait #michelleobama #amysherald #womenartists #blackwomenartists #blackgirlmagic #artwithkids #artteachersofinstagram #teachingart (Amy Sherald, as a kid, 🖍 by @lucyknisley.)

🕊 It is hard to know how to talk to our kids about war, and heartbreaking that we even have to. It’s easy to talk about peace ☮️ though. One way to begin the discussion is through art. Art Historian Carol Wells, Executive Director of The Center for the Study Of Political Graphics, taught us that “Art is more than something pretty. It helps people see the world in a different way.” And she shared tips w our young readers on how to use art to change the world. 🌎 A thoughtful interview and activity for children who have questions about Ukraine 🇺🇦 . Also see @politicalgraphics for inspirational #standwithukraine posts. 👉 From Kazoo’s Art Issue #23. This 2x National Magazine Award Finalist issue is now available as a single issue in our shop.

#tbt February 2020. By my smile, you can see I had no idea what the next 2 yrs would bring. 🦠😷😔 /// I was blissfully unaware & just filming a lil video for my publisher about our book Noisemakers, which was to come out w @knopfkids later that month. (As you can imagine the book release was *not great*, since at about that time the entire world changed.) I never posted these clips, but scrolling through videos on my phone today, it’s nice to remember this person and see this smile. (And, I’m still really proud of our collection of true-tales comics about extraordinary women, too. 💪💅🏻🌈) I know we all had different experiences of the pandemic, but I think most of us have been changed in some way. Whatever these past 2 yrs have been like for you and your children, I so hope you can all find your biggest smiles again soon. 😁😁😁 I have been finding mine more and more these days. ❤️ Xo, Erin #noisemakers #smiles #tbt

Kazoo's "Art issue" is up for another "Best Cover of the Year" award from American Society of Magazine Editors. The art world has long been a bastion of male power, where gender parity is still a dream. Of the artists represented in the collections of America’s most prestigious museums, 87% are men. Of course, an 8-year-old girl with a box of crayons doesn’t know that. She just knows that she loves to draw. Our Art Issue is for her, in hopes that by following the lead of the amazing artists we've featured here, she'll grow into a very different art world.

Because we know our readers like to color our covers, we made this one interactive. Illustrated by New York Times bestseller Lucy Knisley, it gives our young readers their very own gallery opening, complete with an adoring crowd.

As we’re putting the finishing touches on our 24th (!!!) issue, we’re getting a little nostalgic & looking back at our launch. Remember this first editor’s letter (& amazing illustration by @libbyvanderploeg)? I had just left @condenast after almost 20 yrs (where I started my career as an assistant & worked as a staff writer for many yrs, eventually becoming an editor-at-large) & I was excited (& terrified) to start this new adventure by launching Kazoo. We worked w these huge legends in our 1st issue—@jacqueline_woodson, @alisonbechdel, @mickalenethomas, @diananyad, @cronindoreen, @maya, among others—& as proud as I am of it, I know every issue has been better than the last. Thank you for reading! Here’s to many more years of fun! Xo, Erin

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 . . . ☺️
