5.0 out of 5 stars A great start for kids interested in sports! December 1, 2002
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I hesitated before subscribing to this magazine on behalf of my son, mainly due to a vague sense of dread about how SIKids might handle the inevitable boorish behavior by various jock/celebs. Every week in the "older" version of SI, you read something about drug bust this, assault and battery that--and you wonder what effect the antics of these millionaire morons has on kids. Well, to my surprise (and relief), SIKids generally skirts this type of nonsense and focuses squarely on the achievements of great athletes. The layouts and photos are great and the writing never talks down to kids. Instead, the magazine seems to excel at delivering good, solid journalism that kids can actually appreciate and relate to. SIKids is a VERY good investment if your son or daughter loves sports!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes Better than the Adult Version! April 24, 2004
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This a fabulous sports magazine whiich features interviews, sports reporting, quizzes and games, and stories about professional as well as amateur (many of them young) athletes. The magazine is fun, factual, and age appropriate. In fact, I sometimes enjoy the purity of the stories, which evoke the joy of sports and elevate the human angle. Each issue also has a 2-page mini-poster, and lots of fun features that not only inform and entertain, but promote reading. One of the best gifts you can get for any young sports fan--but you may find yourself borrowing it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great magazine. July 12, 2002
By Deanna
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Sports Illustrated for Kids is an excellent magazine for younger sports fans. In each issue you get collectible cards, the "Buzz Beamer" comic, trivia challenges, a calendar, a "What's On TV" column and, of course, informative articles featuring athletes, plus so much more.
As a 14-year-old sports fan, I truly look forward to receiving this magazine every month because it's so fun and interesting to read.
This is a must have for kids and teens who enjoy sports!

5.0 out of 5 stars Get your kids to read! December 30, 2004
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I ordered this as a birthday gift for my 8yr old nephew who loves to both play and watch sports. Now he grabs the issue as soon as it arrives and runs to his room to read it and get his new trading cards. Each issue also comes with a small poster in the middle that can be hung in their room or locker. It appears to have the same or similar articles as the "adult" version but no swimsuit issue and otherwise edited for the younger set. He has already asked me to renew the subscription for his next birthday. This is a great way to get your kids reading which will also help improve their writing as well as other skills needed in school (and life).

If your child loves sports I highly recommend investing in a subscription - well worth the $20!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great magazine for kids September 16, 2004
By kc
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I've been reading this with my six year old son for several months now. It's a great way to get in some pleasurable reading, and start forming a reading habit, with a child who likes sports.

There are a number of standard sections, and nice short articles in kid-friendly language. Each month they have an insert with some playing cards which he looks forward to. And they'll interview a player about a specific skill -- how to steal a base, how to play defense in basketball, etc.

I recommend it both for the fun/sports content, and also for the educational benefit of starting the reading habit.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great magazine for young sports fans May 9, 2002
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I have been a subscriber to Sports Illustrated for Kids for nearly 10 years now. Sports Illustrated for Kids is a great magazine that is sent out monthly to subscribers. It includes great stories about professional players and their personal lives as well as stories about kids in the sports world and a lot more. Sports Illustrated for Kids is full of great, interesting articles, fun games, trivia, comics, and is very easy to read. Every month their is a featured player, who a large article is written about and a large poster is included. There is even a section for video game fans called Sports Gamer that reviews the latest sports video games.
If you are looking for a special gift for a child who likes sports, I highly recommend that you subscribe to this magazine.

4.0 out of 5 stars one of the better kids' magazines July 21, 2008
Subscription Term Name:1 year
My son is 8 and a sports freak. When this magazine arrives in the mailbox, he jumps on it and reads every word. It helps him stay up on the latest so he can be the "expert" out on the playground!

As a mom, one thing I like about this magazine is that in addition to covering the major sports (baseball, football, etc.) they also have features about less common sports from time to time.

I wish there was a bit less advertising, of course, which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. But it's much better than some other kids mags I've seen.

I thought about buying regular Sports Illustrated for my son. He's an advanced reader and would be able to keep up, and it's certainly a better deal money-wise, what with it being a weekly publication. But another reviewer made a great comment here that I changed my mind: adult SI has lots of articles about athletes with drugs, personal life issues (divorce or whatnot), legal issues and so forth. These are not interesting or appropriate for my little boy. He doesn't want a scandal sheet, he just wants to read about *sports*, and that's the focus in SI for Kids.

(PS: based on other reviews for this and other magazines here on Amazon, I have taken to ordering all magazines directly from the publisher. I hope Amazon starts carrying more reliable magazine distributors because it would be nice to handle all my subs right here.)
