Kids Post Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
KidsPost is the only section of the paper that is written especially for students in grades 2 through 7. Appearing in the paper Sunday through Thursday it is designed to give students summaries of important news happening locally, nationally and internationally. KidsPost also includes features on kids, animals, life at school and issues of particular interest to kids. It also features book reviews, contests and puzzles.
A review from Common Sense Media, a leading source of entertainment and technology recommendations for families about Kids Post, "The Washington Post's KidsPost content, which often involves historical events, gets points for being written specifically for kids. However, the site has fairly frequent missed media opportunities. An article on Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, for example, doesn't include an audio, video, or text version of the speech. There also aren't any visual tweaks to make the site easy for kids to navigate; its interface is nearly identical to the standard Post. Most contributions seem to be from staff writers or wire services instead of kids, and users under 13 can't post comments, increasing the safety factor but preventing opinion-sharing. Activities are few (and many are quizzes). The frequent Post subscription ads also detract from the experience; they seem to pop up everywhere and get annoying fast. However, there are a few good resources: the Readers' Corner features kids' book reviews written in a kid-friendly voice, and the lesson plans for teachers can be a good jumping-off point for discussion. KidsPost can provide extra reading practice, but, for current events or news analysis, you may want to provide monitored access to a more comprehensive site."
