Raising educated readers

Here's something I never knew existed: a subsection of a major newspaper designed specifically to explain news on a level understandable by and interesting to children. It's at the Washington Post and it's called KidsPost. Sure, there are stories about animals, but there is also an explanation of the Senate decision to apologize about lynching, and lots of other meaty stories. What a fantastic undertaking!
