The Entertaining, Informative, Challenging, and Inspiring Magazine for Preteens.
Since 1976, OWL has ignited the curiosities of kids ages 9 to 13. Founded as a nature and science magazine for children, OWL has expanded in scope to include relevant information on the topics and issues that concern preteens while remaining true to its mission of educating and entertaining. Unusual for its intended age group, OWL is loved by both girls and boys, identifying the core of what really matters to 9- to 13-year-olds and relaying it with a signature honesty, intelligence, and humour.
From sports and the environment, to pop culture and peer relationships, readers are invited to share their opinions in every issue. The OWL editorial staff is dedicated to creating lively text, bold designs, and tons of fun with original comics, quirky facts, and mind-boggling puzzles, all intended to develop critical-thinking skills.
The Think Tank, OWL’s kids-only advisory team, gives the magazine’s staff valuable feedback and acts as a sounding board for new ideas. Curriculum experts ensure that the content complements the work preteens are doing at school, giving OWL readers the confidence and ability to be successful in their studies.
Inspiring young minds for more than 35 years, OWL continues to inform and inspire preteens looking to engage with the world they live in. But don’t just take our word for it, check out the OWL love letters from our readers.
“When I read in bed, I read my magazines. I’ve read each one about seven times, but I’m still not bored of them.”
“Renewing these gifts (knowing how they’re enjoyed and what they achieve) is a meaningful token of a grand-dad’s love.”–Peter
