Dylan, News-O-Matic Reader

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'm a 3rd-grader and I love News-O-Matic! It's so fun and I get all the information I need. Thanks for creating this program for kids just like me!


"CT Mommy," Parent

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.

Emily, Parent

Thanks to you and your staff for working hard to bring us important news during this challenging time of school-at-home. My elementary-aged boys and I are loving this app!
