It seems like I'm constantly getting parenting magazines in the mail. As I flip through them, my three year old always like to look at the pictures of babies and kids, and point out various animals in the ads. The last time we did this, I thought "He really needs his own magazine." I couldn't really think of any appropriate titles though, until the National Geographic Little Kids issues came in the mail.
As soon as we opened them, he grabbed them and squealed with delight.. He wouldn't even let me touch them. "Mine!" he exclaimed, and that was that. I snuck a peek after we put him to bed. I love how little it is - at 6 1/2" by 7", it's the perfect size for him to hold. It definitely doesn't skimp on the fun though. Each issue is full of gorgeous full color pictures of animals, fun activities and games, and these awesome wild animal cards in the middle. It's aimed at preschoolers age 3 to 6, and also their parents. I was impressed by what I saw and eager to try out some of the simple science experiments in the magazines with my son...that is, if I can get them back from him. You can purchase a subscription to National Geographic Little Kids (6 issues for only $15) here.
