Preschoolers and Kindergartners Like Receiving Mail Too

The next time you are about to purchase a video game or other type of technological device for your young child, please give a magazine subscription some serious thought. There is something exciting in the eyes of a young child when the mailman or mail woman brings mail just for you. There are many magazines out now that cater specifically to young children.  You should check them out for your child.  A magazine is a gift that keeps on giving every month of the year and magazines also make a great birthday gifts for all of the parties that your young child will be attending.  Although my own children are all grown and well beyond these magazines, here are a few of my favorites for young children.

Your Big Backyard:

A publication of the National Wildlife Federation and is perfect for kids aged 3 to 5.

Disney and Me:

Join Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and all Pooh’s friends in Hundred Acre Wood for early-learning fun in a bi-monthly, full size, 32 page 4-color children’s magazine for ages 2-6

National Geographic Little Kids Magazine

This innovative NEW magazine is full of learning and fun for youngsters ages 3 to 6 and their parents. Bursting with lively photographs, engaging stories, and interactive picture games, each issue supplies you with fresh and imaginative teaching tools brought to you by National Geographic.

Thomas & Friends Magazine

Every issue of Thomas and Friends is filled with charming stories and includes a collectible poster, educational activities, and a pull-out workbook for children between ages 2-5.

Sparkle World Magazine

Sparkle World Magazine features all the characters little girls love! Full of lovable friends such as the Care Bears, Angelina Ballerina, Strawberry Shortcake and many others, Sparkle World opens a magical world of early learning for little girls 3 and up

Highlights High Five Magazine:

Highlights High Five is the newest offering from the publisher of the nation’s #1 children’s magazine, Highlights for Children.  Perfect for ages 2-6.

I am in no way connected to any of these magazines.  I only hope that you will find a magazine that your own child will enjoy.

    Claire, you continue to blog some wise advice to parents. I never thought of children having to recognize their name as well as write it. There is nothing like seeing success on the face of a child, especially on the first day of school. Something so small as writing/reading your name can make first day of school a pleasant experience. Also, I am familiar with some of the magazines. The wonderful part is that they can be read to a K and of course the children can enjoy the pictures. Parents can initiate conversation with the K children. AS they get older they can refer back to those magazines for information and pictures for projects.
    Thanks for great tips. mary
