About the magazine

The team behind the magazine started Honest History as a place for kids to explore the past and re-discover stories of people, just like us, who changed the world.  In their experience, history contains answers and also sparks new questions — their goal is to bring true tales from around the world into the imagination of children (and their parents, too).  They value research, journalistic integrity and accuracy above hyperbole.

Truthfully, they believe that history contains stories with facts greater than any work of fiction. Their aim is to encourage children to conduct their own research and uncover stories of their own, supported by data and accompanied by a sense of adventure.  Design plays a large role in their magazine and they set out to source the most talented illustrators to design each issue as something to collect and cherish. Finally, they believe in sustainable commerce and education, starting with green printing and leading to partnerships with schools and educational brands.
