Discovery Magazine—Just for Kids
by Bert Thompson, Ph.D.

Printer version | Email this article

In January 1990, we at Apologetics Press introduced Discovery, our monthly magazine on Scripture and science for kids. It was an immediate “hit”—and remains so today. From time to time, I like to pause and recommend Discovery to our readers, because we believe it is an invaluable tool that parents, grandparents, Bible class teachers, Vacation Bible School instructors, and others can use to impart important instruction to inquisitive youngsters.

Discovery CoversDiscovery is printed in full color on attractive enameled paper. Each beautifully illustrated 8-page issue is filled with faith-building lessons on both Bible and science—lessons that teach children about God’s Word and God’s world.

In the past, in Discovery we have discussed, among other things, such topics as: the existence of God; the inspiration of the Bible; the church; the miracles of Jesus; the global flood of Noah; how we got the Bible; science and technology; the geologic timetable; Bible customs; lands of the Bible; dinosaurs; amazing plants and animals; tornados; idolatry; diseases, sickness, and the body’s natural defenses; the world of caves; the Christ Who lived and walked among us; women of the Bible; biblical kings and their kingdoms; seeds and fruits; parables in the Old and New Testaments; and many other such items.

Each issue of Discovery contains fun activities that are intended to reinforce the truths presented in each article. Children from eight to twelve years old likely will benefit the most from Discovery, but children of all ages can (and do!) enjoy the amazing animals, fascinating facts, and alluring activities. [Truth be told, even adults have admitted to learning a lot by reading Discovery on a regular basis. You would be surprised to learn how many adults are on our mailing list!]

One of the most popular features of Discovery is “Digger Doug,” our kid-friendly mole/sleuth who responds to questions that youngsters send him. He “digs up” the answers, and we publish them in Discovery. Digger Doug also has a friend, “Iguana Don,” who helps him on “tough” assignments. Between the two of them, they provide children with a welcome relief from the evolution-based fare so common in children’s publications today.

Discovery is just what your children, grandchildren, nephews, or nieces need to offset the humanistic teaching they frequently receive via the public schools, on television, in secular magazines, and from other sources. [It also makes a great gift for neighborhood kids, who treasure each issue as it arrives in their mailbox.]

Kyle Butt and Eric Lyons serve as the editor and associate editor, respectively, of Discovery, and do a splendid job with each issue. The cost for a year’s subscription is only $12. Club subscriptions (ten or more sent directly into the children’s homes) cost only $10 a year each, and bulk subscriptions (five or more to one address) are only $8.50 each. Isn’t there a child in your life who would benefit from Discovery? If so, call us toll free at 800/234-8558. We’ll be happy to help.
