As part of a new experiment, the New York Times is printing a one-time, special edition New York Times for kids.
The newspaper for kids will be going out to subscribers this Sunday, along with the ordinary weekend version of the newspaper for adults. Although the layout of the newspaper mimics the paper's usual layout, and it includes sections for sports, national news, opinions and science, the content targets kids between the ages of nine to 12. Some of the stories include topics like how to win an argument against parents, how to win a spelling bee and tips for making your own crossword puzzle.
The release of this one-time New York Times for kids is being used as a means of rewarding print subscribers with exclusive content that can't be accessed online.
