What's New With Ranger Rick?
From cuttlefish to zebras, September's issue has something for everyone
Hi. Are you ready for a sneak peek at the September 2010 issue of Ranger Rick magazine? It’s a great one, if I do say so myself! We’ve got your kids’ favorites: riddles, games, critter crackups, and the comic, “Ranger Rick’s Adventures,” which you and your children can read on our Web site. This month, Rick and his pals discover how balloons can harm sea creatures.
But wait! There’s more. Our feature articles take you from all the way down under the sea to the arid plains of Africa—and back home again! Here’s the lineup:
Cuttlefish! Despite its name, the cuttlefish is no fish! It’s a cousin of the octopus and squid. And it’s quite a trickster, able to change its skin to blend in with its surroundings. It can take on a new pattern or texture in less than a second!
Zebras. Meet the rare and little-known Grevy’s zebra. These stars in stripes are struggling to survive in some of Africa’s driest grasslands. But you don’t have to have the magazine in hand to find out more. We’ve put the whole article online!
How To Green Your Parents. How often do kids get to grade their parents? This article shows them how to do just that—by testing their family’s “green” habits. That makes for some fun, reverse role-playing. But it can lead to some serious savings and help the Earth, too. Read the entire story online.
Kids Rule! Kids can do amazing things! A 13-year-old boy has already raised lots of money to help great apes and has become quite an expert on these primates, too. Read all about him in this month’s nature news column.
Be a Rock Hound: Fall is a fine time of year to go hunting for rocks! Want to delve more into the subject? Check out our list of geology field guides and books.
