"Kinder zhurnal and Farlag Matones were both founded by the Sholem Aleichem Folk Institute, an organization established in New York in 1918 to coordinate a secular Yiddish school system. Kinder zhurnal, a children's magazine, was in existence from 1920 to 1981. Its first editor, Shmuel Niger, served from 1922 to 1948. The magazine published works by writers such as Mani Leib, Aleph Katz, Jacob Glatstein, Kadia Molodowsky. " - Guide to the Yivo Archives. Subjects: Children's literature, Yiddish - Periodicals.

A few issues missing wraps; some issues lightly soiled, folded, and contain an address stamp on rear; overall very clean and fresh, not aged, and well kept. Very good condition. (YID-22-51).
