Meet the Editor!

Tim Herbert, Editor of National Geographic Kids magazine

Hi Tim! What’s your favourite thing about being the editor of National Geographic Kids magazine?

I work with a fantastic team of writers and designers, and together we create a magazine that we know kids really love! When a reader writes in to tell you how much they enjoy National Geographic Kids magazine and how you’ve inspired them to learn more about the world they live in, it’s a great feeling.

How do you choose what goes in each issue?

It varies a lot. We do stories based on events that are happening that month, such as World Space Week, National Pet Month or Refugee Week, but we also write features based on cool scientific research, history, geography, news, trips the team have been on and topics that have been suggested by the readers themselves.

What do you think makes National Geographic Kids magazine so special?

It’s exciting, educational and inspires kids to find out more about the planet. Children who read National Geographic Kids magazine love sharing the facts they’ve discovered in the mag with their friends, class-mates and family. Our aim is to make learning fun!

Why do you think it’s important to learn about animals, people and places around the world?

Our planet is really precious and extremely fragile, and we need to appreciate that. The more we learn about its animals, plants, people and places, the better the chance we have of looking after it.

What age group is Nat Geo Kids aimed at?

Our readers are kids aged 7-13. We’ve done lots of reader surveys and have found that more than 90% of them share the mag with their parents.

What can you expect to find in each issue?

Lots of fun! Each issue is packed with gorgeous posters, brain-teasing puzzles, exciting competitions and fascinating facts that make our readers go ‘Wow!’ And we want them to come back every month for more!

You can find National Geographic Kids magazine in all good newsagents, or you can become a subscriber and have it delivered to your door each month!
