Children's magazines

Children's magazines are more attractive than ever. Parkland Community Library has subscriptions to more than a dozen children's magazines, including American Girl, Highlights for Children and the new younger sibling of Highlights, Highlights High Five. High Five is written for children between the ages of 2 and 5 and includes cartoons, stories, games and informative articles, just like its older sib, Highlights.

Special interest magazines on PCL's Children's magazine shelves include Kids Discover, the non-fiction magazine for children. Kids Discover sports beautiful photos, insightful articles, games and quizzes for children in grades 3 and up.

My favorite magazines are the "bug" magazines, Ladybug, Spider, and Cricket. These magazines are literary magazines for children, with writings by some of today's most popular and acclaimed children's authors. This family of magazines features illustrations by famous children's illustrators, too. Cricket is by far my favorite children's magazine and is written for young readers between the ages of 9 and 14. Spider's audience is the 7 to 10 age group. Ladybug is written for 4 through 7 year olds.

Ask ; arts and siences for kids and Click! are two other magazines published by the company that does Cricket. Ask and Click! are non-fiction magazines for readers in grades 3 and up.

PCL also carries Sports Illustrated for Kids, Ranger Rick, Your Big Backyard, Cobblestone and National Geographic for Kids.

Children's magazines are shelved on the window sill in the Picture Book area. The newest issue must remain in the library but all older issues can be taken out. Check one out today!
