News-O-Matic gives young readers a window into the world — and a reason to love reading every day. News-O-Matic's stories also enable kids to connect with scientists, world leaders, and other experts. We offer one subscription for the entire family, up to three different users.
Encourage Daily Reading
News-O-Matic publishes five unique news stories every day. Children will always find an interesting topic to read. Every article includes interactive videos, maps, fun facts, and quizzes.
Choose Your Child’s Reading Level
News-O-Matic offers three reading levels to choose from, so children of different ages and reading abilities can read the same stories.
Every article is reviewed by our child psychologist. We use the right words so children will understand the news and won’t be afraid. News-O-Matic is an invaluable tool to help parents talk about sensitive topics.
One Subscription for Three Users
For iOS users, you can connect up to three devices to one single subscription. To do that, you have to log in to each device with one single Apple ID.
All Stories Read Aloud
Children can listen along to the stories read out loud — so they can learn from the stories regardless of their reading abilities.
Ability to Write and Draw
Kids can express themselves by asking questions, sending
comments, or drawing pictures through the in-app "News Room."

Every day my dad reads the newspaper and I go on my iPad and read my News-O-Matic paper. I love this app and I love learning every day what’s going on on the earth so I read this app and find out. Thanks!

I have never seen anything like this. A DAILY newspaper that kids love — with totally new stories every single day. My kid loves hearing the stories read out loud to him and exploring the videos and pictures. What I love best is the range of article topics. There is science, arts, world news, and sports (my 10-year-old’s favorite). Always something interesting to discover each day of the week.
Academics' Choice Parent Review
We love News-O-Matic! This website was perfect for my son. So many age-appropriate images and articles to click on! We read and learned about mindfulness, protests, and silly walks. It was so easy to read, then click on the video or game button to support the content in a different way. The articles were age-appropriate and full of engaging images. I liked the interactive ability on the site to click on vocabulary words for proper pronunciation and definition.
