Great for Inquisitive Minds Review by Megan

This is an awesome magazine, even for kids older than 9 years old. As an adult, I learn a lot of new things too! There is a great variety of topics covered- some of our favorites were Slime and Stars.

Looking Back Review by Reminiscent High School Senior

I was drawn to look for this magazine while writing a college essay, and I remembered how much of an impact this magazine had on me as a kid. It's because of this magazine that I first discovered my interest in science, and now, a decade later, I'm planning on getting a physics degree and going into research! Reading all of these reviews from all of these young future scientists filled me with so much nostalgia and wistfulness, and if any of you are reading this, I want you to know that you can absolutely do anything you set your mind to. I was once where you are now! And as a 17 year old, I can honestly say that science and discovery will never stop feeling interesting. I felt like I was 8 again when I saw the first every photo of a black hole. So keep pursuing your dreams! Become a doctor, an astrophysicist, a marine biologist, a civil engineer, or anything in-between. And thank you to Ask magazine for inspiring me when I was young, and for continuing to inspire the future!

Wonderful magazine Review by Phyllis L., New York

It is a wonderful magazine! This is a beautiful way to inspire children to go into science, especially girls, who so often love whales and other animals.

Cool ice cream Review by Luna, age 8

Thank you for the recipe for fake ice cream! (in the food photography article.) I made it with my mom. I was doing a skit in my classroom that needed ice cream as a prop. It worked great and all my friends thought it was really cool.

I LOVE ASK Review by Rayna, age 8, Mass.

I LOVE Ask! I liked when Plush saved you from the strange fish in March, and the story about Otzi the frozen man. You are #1! I love your pranks!

Fascinating Review by Doris, age 8, Michigan

I love Ask, it’s very fascinating! I think you should make an issue about the human body because I like disgusting stuff and I’m very fascinated by the human body and its digestive system.
