Parents' Choice Foundation: Reviewing Children's Media Since 1978



Spring 2017 Magazines
Ages: 3 - 6 yrs.
Newsstand Price: $6.95
Subscription Price: $33.95 / 9 Issues

Through real-life photographs, cartoon art, fact-based storytelling, experiments, and activities, each issue of this winning magazine from Cricket Media explores a single subject from varied angles. Recent subjects included skin (how various animals shed theirs or change colors, how touch receptors work in humans, what it's like to read and write in Braille, how plants protect themselves) and airplanes (what gravity, air pressure, and lift are; what a plane's instrument panel looks like, how pilots communicate with air traffic controllers, how airports and runways work). The magazines' foldout back covers reinforce each subject with a related full-color craft or game to cut out and try. This generous, smart publication respects its young audience, fostering curiosity and a sense of inquiry.
