Calliope What was it like to live during the Black Death? Who were the Salii? Kids with Calliope in hand may be able to tell you. From life with the Trojans, to the ins and outs of sailing the South Pacific with Captain Cook, this magazine serves up history through the eyes of its major players. Rather than the shmorgesboard approach, each issue of Calliope focuses on a particular region during a particular time period. For example, kids might get up close and personal with the Mayans, or meet Egypt’s heretic, Akhenaten, through a trip to his tomb—accompanied by an archeologist capable of translating the symbols in his letters. The magazine is extremely text-heavy, and may earn some eye rolling from the historically-phobic. But for history buffs in the making? This is pay dirt. ($33.95/year, Ages 9-14)

What do teens eat in Japan? What’s school like in Kyrgyzstan? Chockfull of interesting facts and personal stories, Faces is the next best thing to a round-the-world ticket. ($33.95/year, Ages 10-13)
