Kids can go online today to find out almost anything. However, there’s still something about getting good old snail mail that kids love. It has their name on it and it’s just for them. Today we’re recommending three magazines for kids. Although each has a web site they also offer a print version on a subscription basis. Some of these are used in school classrooms but all are great for in home (or on vacation) reading. Besides being entertained, the kids will learn a few things along the way. You can check out type of content that each magazine contains and, if think it’s appropriate for your children you can subscribe from the website.
Kids Discover – Kids Discover is for educating and entertaining kids aged 7 to 12. The topics covered include science, space, nature, history and culture. All of the issues are ad-free which is a nice feature. From the Kids Discover web site “Every issue of KIDS DISCOVER delves deeply into a single topic. It’s packed with essential information and fun facts, and is engaging and easily assimilated. Full-color iconic photographs as well as custom-created illustrations and cartoons capture the imagination while word games, puzzles, and activities round out the experience, leaving kids eager to share their new knowledge and tackle the next issue of KIDS DISCOVER.
National Geographic Kids – National Geographic Kids for Kids age 6 and up and National Geographic little Kids National Geographic Little Kids for Kids age 3-6. These are the age appropriate kid’s versions of the National Geographic magazine which has been published since 1888. Any publication that’s been around for almost 125 years deserves a closer look. One of the advantages this offers is not only longevity but if kids enjoy the magazine they can move up to the next level as they get older.
Sports Illustrated Kids – Sports Illustrated Kids is for your budding Olympian. Much like the adult version, except for the swimsuit issue, it covers most sports and sports stars. We know that kids are more likely to read about things that interest them. If your child is into sports of any kind, a subscription to Sports Illustrated Kids will keep your kids reading every month.
