Mr. Drummey told his seventh grade English students if one of their essays on "money and stress" was chosen for publication by @nytimes For Kids, he would teach a whole day wearing a banana suit. Great job, Lila. Great job! #writing #teaching #joy https://t.co/FKYGOAFBMS

What is money? Why do we believe in it? How do we use it and how is it changing? Check out this month's NYT For Kids edition to make sense of the greenback and why it controls our lives. https://t.co/r25JYn0kFI

this month for @nytimes Kids, I got to answer kids' burning questions about MONEY, like: what happens if all your money catches on fire? what's the deal with pennies? how much money do firefighters make? https://t.co/dIzMwNVkWn

We hope this issue leaves kids feeling empowered. Because power is a large part of money: Feeling comfortable enough to talk about money is power. Knowing enough about how the economy, businesses or banks work is power. Understanding what money can do, and what it can’t, is power

food is actually a huge part of ramadan. there’s so much joy, downright giddiness (is that just me??) and appreciation when you sit down for iftar. i talked to 3 fantastic kids on their ramadan plans, what fasting means to them + the food they crave most. https://t.co/2jhHxAE58Z

Inside: A brand new world map that you can cut out, assemble and hold in your hands. We embed at a Cali school during the students' first day back after a year online. A teen talks anti-Asian discrimination. What meals kids love to break fast with during Ramadan and much more!!

In features section design, a gold medal goes to @nytimes for "Kids sections: April, August, December" "They’ve thought about everything -- it pushes the medium. When it comes to state of the art, it’s the most cohesive cover to cover section." https://t.co/iexhMBZrsd
