A new newspaper will be distributed on Long Island this fall, but if you want a copy, you'll have to ask your son or daughter, provided they're young.
Like pre-kindergarten through sixth-grade young.
It's called Kidsville News, a free, national monthly paper to be published locally by a Cold Spring Harbor public-relations executive and distributed at schools in Nassau, Suffolk and Queens, and at some restaurants and amusement parks, beginning this month.
In this age of the Internet, newspapers and young people may seem an unusual combination, but Kidsville News is aimed at stimulating youngsters to read about current events and educational topics, said Alyssa Nightingale, the publisher.
