Kid's Magazines

Magazine subscriptions are a great way to encourage reading because your child receives a new issue each month and you can get magazines on topics that interest your child, such as sports or science. If you child enjoys comics, encourage him to read comic books and find series that he enjoys.

Over the years we have subscribed to several different magazines. When my kids were toddlers they enjoyed Wild Animal Baby and then graduated to My Big Backyard. I find it interesting that both of my kids love Highlights, which was my favorite magazine growing up. My daughter is obsessed with her American Girl magazine and I am planning on getting my son Sports Illustrated for Kids.

What magazines do your kids enjoy?

  1. Jennifer, this is such a great idea to share. We rarely buy books because we "live" at the library. However, I found that a magazine subscription is a great gift for my kids. My middle son loves Dirt Rider and my 13 yr old, loves American Girl, too.
