The publication of this newspaper commenced in 1977 at the behest of the Bangladesh government. It was published from the 'Observer House' and the eminent journalist and editor of weekly cine-magazine the Chitrali, Syed Mohammad Parvez, was appointed the editor. However, writer, journalist and children's organizer Rafiqul Haque, popularly known as Dadu bhai was in charge as its executive editor.
The Government of Bangladesh discontinued publication of Kishore Bangla in 1983.
The work team of Kishore Bangla comprised, in addition to Rafiqul Haque, the eminent journalist Shah Alamgir, writer Abdur Rahman, actor and graphic artist Afzal Hossain, journalist Saiful Alam Lytton and author Mustafa Majid, among others. Najimuddin Manik, Faizul Latif Chowdhury, and Syed Borhan Kabir also there worked for some time.

Some of the novels published in the Kishore Bangla were "Nulia chorir shonar pahar", "Dipu Number Two" and "Operation Kakonpur".
Kishore Bangla was published every Friday. It was a multi-coloured newspaper that was meant only for children. It was unique in its kind because it was a newspaper, rather than a literary magazine that was published on a weekly basis for a long period of time. Starting from mid-1970s, it made significant contribution in moulding and grooming the mindset of boys and girls of middle-class Bangladesh in a positive way.
Kishore Bangla was re-introduced for its readers with new look and feel later. Now it is a publication of Mohammadi Group of Companies Ltd.
