5-0 out of 5 stars The Cards The Cards The Cards !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok I'm a guy who gets the magazine for the cards because the cards that are often featured in the magazine can become hot collectibles!!!. For instance, did you know that one of Tiger Woods hottest Rookie Cards was featured in this magazine? Yep, and today that card it worth some pretty big bucks. As for the rest of the magazine, well, let me say that I like it because of the fantastic photos (photos by the way kids will love to hang up on their walls or in their lockers at school) and the superb writing. You will get interesting articles on all the popular sports including swimming, basketball, baseball, tennis, football, and gymnastics, plus you will get great bios on some of today's hottest sports stars. My buddy Kim has a son who has a subscription to the magazine and he loves it. Not only is this a fun magazine to read, but it's interesting, informative, and a great collectible!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT MAGAZINE!!
This is a GREAT MAGAZINE for kids of all ages!! It has trivia for prizes, Video Game and Sports Gear Reviews by kids, a lot of differnt write ups on great Sports Stars like Tiger Woods, Lisa Leslie, Dale Earnardt Jr. and lots more that kids like! I'm starting my 2nd Year of the magazine! 5 STARS!! GREAT MAGAZINE!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Sometimes Better than the Adult Version!
This a fabulous sports magazine whiich features interviews, sports reporting, quizzes and games, and stories about professional as well as amateur (many of them young) athletes. The magazine is fun, factual, and age appropriate. In fact, I sometimes enjoy the purity of the stories, which evoke the joy of sports and elevate the human angle. Each issue also has a 2-page mini-poster, and lots of fun features that not only inform and entertain, but promote reading. One of the best gifts you can get for any young sports fan--but you may find yourself borrowing it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great magazine for the Junior Jock in your life
My mother purchased a subscription to SI for Kids last year for our son who was an almost-seven-year-old. Ever since the first issue, he has gotten very excited when the latest issue arrived. At first, he would just look at the pictures and read what he could. Since his reading level has "exploded" this past year (in part, no doubt to the sports books/magazines he's been reading), he reads every issue from cover to cover. This is a great magazine for kids. Needless to say, his subscription has been renewed for another year. We'll be moving up to the next level of SI before too long, I'm sure.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Magazine for Preschoolers/1st Grade
My daughter has been receiving this magazine for two years. It is the best child's magazine I have seen for Preschoolers. It has a variety of activities including art, outdoor/indoor, animal-related, mind stimulating (puzzles, etc.), and stories. We read this magazine together when she rides the train with me to work. I keep several in my bag because they are each so full of facts about animals -- both domesticated and wildlife, their habitat, and our world in general. We both learn the answers to common questions about featured animals from kids 3-7. It contains high quality, well written articles for children, excellent photographs, and colorful graphics. I highly recommend it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great magazine
My 5 year-old urban-born son loves this magazine. The pictures, stories and information about wild animals and their habitats are fun to read and he learns a lot in the process.

1-0 out of 5 stars Ripped Us Off!
We paid for a year subscription to this magazine and only received ONE magazine. The company was HORRIBLE to deal with in trying to get them to fix their screw-up and we finally had to cut our losses rather than go through any more aggravation. Our son was very very dissapointed... avoid this publisher like the plague.

5-0 out of 5 stars BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS But Not As Much Content As NATURE FRIEND
We first got this magazine a year ago and enjoyed it very much. Our five year old would have our teenage son read it to her, and she loved the photos.

We became disappointed when they started to make some of the first features we loved available only on the internet, leaving them out of the magazine. That was annoying. I do not allow my children to use the internet most of the time as it diminshes their love for books.

When our son kept wishing that another nature magazine was still around that he had received as a young child, NATURE FRIEND, I started to search and see what happened to it.

After much digging and searching, I finally found it through here at AMAZON.COM and my son was literally thrilled. He is almost 20.

We got our first issue and after having to choose between the two magazines (we can only afford one right now), the kids chose not to renew BIG BACKYARD again and keep the NATURE FRIEND.

BIG BACKYARD is a beautifully done magazine with nice simple features. If they had not taken out some of the more interactive things and put them on internet only, we might have kept subscribing. Our entire family enjoys NATURE FRIEND so much more because of the issues being packed with things to DO and not just read and learn about. It involves everyone in the family- something that is not easily done these days.

It seems that once BIG BACKYARD came in the mail, it was read once or twice and then sat on a table or shelf. NATURE FRIEND seems to be picked up by someone in the family constantly for reading or doing something featured inside.

5-0 out of 5 stars 4-year-olds will know lots of things you don't
My niece is 4 and told me other night all about marsupials. They've got pouches, she said, and a lot of them live in Australia. The mother marsupial carries the baby in her pouch. Penguins are another thing she's mastered. The daddy penguin carries the egg between its feet, and you might think they live at the North Pole but you'd be wrong. Penguins live at the South Pole ("that's Antarctica" she says) and POLAR BEARS live at the North Pole (I knew that, really). When reading aloud from Your Big Backyard (which I was never really that into as a child, being a Cricket fan from the start), I often find myself fading away midsentence to go "Huh! How interesting!" only to look over and find the niece tapping her fingers in impatience.

If you have a nature/science oriented little one, or even if you don't, try Your Big Backyard. The pictures are fun, the games are entertaining, the Bonnie and Chester stories allow for an interactive bedtime story (albeit a tiny bit too cheesy), and the animal info is so matter-of-fact, that you'll find yourself with your mouth hanging open as little Ritchie informs Jane the grocery store checkout clerk everything he knows about the life cycle of bats.

Don't feel bad. At least you know how to tie your shoes. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Need birthday gifts for your 2nd grader's classmates??
Every year I choose one unisex, age-appropriate gift for the multitude of birthday parties that my sons will be invited to by their classmates and stick with it. This year my 7 year old is in second grade and at-home reading is a daily assignment. Instead of showing up at 24 birthday parties toting a plastic toy that I'm not even sure the child will have an interest in or with a few books that the child may read once or twice and stash away on a shelf, we give the gift that will be new and different each month AND will help them keep up with their nightly reading! Each one of his classmates will get a subscription to Ranger Rick for their birthday this year (unless the parents say the child already receives it, of course). It saves me time, gas and my sanity because I don't have to drag my son around a toy or book store guessing what each of these children *might* like. All kids love to get mail addressed to them even if it is something educational in nature. The parents of these children are also grateful to not add to the unwanted toy closet. This is way to make everyone happy without spending a fortune.

4-0 out of 5 stars great then, still great now
As a kid (20 years ago) I enjoyed getting Ranger Rick in the mail (what kid doesn't love mail addressed especially to them?), and loved the colorful photos and games inside the magazine. I would credit Ranger Rick also with helping to instill my sense of wonder and stewardship for nature, since I've only grown to love nature more as an adult. The sense of community of nature-loving kids is enhanced by childrens' letters to the editor, and the articles about kids exploring, doing biology and ecology projects, or just watching birds. The magazine manages to convey this sense of beauty and fun without getting too heavy about the political issues that often cloud pure enjoyment of animals and nature.

5-0 out of 5 stars Helped Foster My Love and Respect Animals
(...)

Living in the country as I did, I saw plenty wild animals in my backyard (squirrels, raccoons, possums..), but armed with Ranger Rick, I was able to appreciate and see them up close with out being bit, scratched, mauled, or hauled off to the emergency room for rabies shots!

Besides the wonderful animal features, there were projects, games, and activities to keep me and my brother busy. The concepts put forth in each issue emphasized recycling, kindness to animals, and conservation -- values and beliefs I carry with me almost 30 years after the fact.

So whether you live on a farm, the suburbs, or the city, Ranger Rick would be a wonderful gift for your child. It will help foster a life long love and respect for animals, as well as reinforce key values (conservation, recycling, etc.). A few things have changed over the past 30 years, but Ranger Rick is still consistantly a good magazine.

2-0 out of 5 stars Ranger Rots!
This magazine is too old for kids like 6 year olds, and buy the time kids are old enough to understand it, the topics are too babyish for them. The pictures are okay, but they are all the same after awhile.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great magazine for young minds.
I used to get this magazine years ago when I was in the third grade. I loved the magazine then and I still do now. The pictures are great for little kids to look at. They are real photos and not animated ones. The stories with them them are also great for kids to understand. They are extremely informative. I kept all my magazines I used to get, and now my daughter likes to look at them. I would highly reccomend this magazine for all kids. It wouldn't be a waste of time. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars When did this magazine head south?
I had a subscription to National Geographic's original kids magazine, World, when I was a child. In fact, I still have a couple dozen issues from about 25 years ago, which my 5 years old son has enjoyed looking through.

A few months ago, I looked on the web to see if World still existed. Happily, it did, now renamed National Geographic Kids. I ordered a two-year subscription for my son.

I wanted so much to like it. But the damn thing is chock full of advertising for candy, video games and movies, and in a way that makes it hard to separate the selling from the educating. It is a little repulsive, actually, the level to which the advertising is carried.

As I sit here in front of my computer, I am looking wistfully at a May 1982 issue of World magazine. Within which, there is not one stich of advertising.

What happened?

1-0 out of 5 stars A former fan feels betrayed
I was a reader of "world" (the former name of kids" in the 70's and 80's, and I loooooved it. When I had nieces and nephews, I was excited to be able to share this with them - but what a come down - it's shamefully pandering to commercial interests, and the cool science and nature activities are just plain gone. I'm a lifetime member of NG, and am embarassed by this magazine.

5-0 out of 5 stars a great magazine for curious kids who love animals!!!!!!!
i bought this magazine for my nephew tyler who was 8 when he first started getting it and he told me that he loves it!!!!!!!!!!!!! tyler loves reading about the world, other kids in other countries and especially about animals!!!!!!!
tyler told me he likes it better than ranger rick. this magazine is 'ripped' from the mailbox and taken to his room and devoured every month.

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible disappointment
I, like so many others, grew up reading the National Geographic magazine.

Naturally, I thought that NG Kids could only improve upon the experience for my five-year-old. I was severely disappointed. Not only is most of the material vaccuous, it looks like it's been designed by an advertising reject on uppers.

The advertising is shameful and irresponsible. In an age when we are preoccupied by the health of our children, particularly their diet, the latest issue advertises a major fast-food chain right on the cover.

I would strongly recommend that you go with something like 'Ranger Rick' or 'Ladybug' which have children as their main focus and are not edited by twenty-somethings still recovering from a late adolescence.

On top of that, any half-witted hacker can download their entire subscription base in a few minutes by just entering in subscription numbers - it doesn't even ask for a simple validation step like entering in your zip code.

5-0 out of 5 stars Kids Discover is a great magazine!
My son likes reading factual stuff and I've been getting this magazine for him for several years. Each issue covers one topic in-depth. The photography and page layouts are wonderful, and each issue includes lots of information that is presented in a really interesting way. He has learned so much from these magazines, and he is a kid who really does not like reading much but he does enjoy this magazine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Kids Discover mag
I subscribed to this magazine for 6-7 years when my own kids were younger. Our whole family loved its superb photography, interesting topics, and humorous and informative entries. Now I'm subscribing for my niece & nephew.

5-0 out of 5 stars one of the best educational mag's I've found
I bought this for my children and was surprised to find my husband and myself reading it as well. Not only did it come in handy for homework, but the old issues have been saved and used in projects,papers, homework and even by the teachers! I have five children, so they have had alot of exposure to diffirent age levels and have always proven usful. Some of the teachers were excited because this subscription was one that they wished that they could get every year as part of their class materials.
As an added point, while on vacation, we have spotted the back issues on sale in gift shops for as much as four ninety nine $4.99. These were issues that contained stories about the particular historic event, etc that they thought informative enough to sale.
You can't go wrong with this one!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
I have been getting this magazine for my kids for about 3 years now. I love it as much, or more, than they do. Not only is it interesting and fun, but it is educational as well. I reccommend it to everyone with children or grandchildren!

5-0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed until the date on the address label (and after)
I got Ladybug for years until the date on the address label (when the subscription ended). I still enjoy reading them today. I always read them cover to cover and read some parts over and over. I especially enjoy the comics.

5-0 out of 5 stars Quality reading - no advertisements!
Our girls received Ladybug for several years. The magazines are printed on high quality paper, but still after MANY reading, were in good shape.

A great benefit of LADYBUG is there is no advertising. The magazine is full of great illustrations, good site words and bright colors.

A great gift for your own children!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Cricket Group publishes the best magazines for children
I love these magazines. We subscribe to Ladybug, Spider, and Cricket (each for a different child). The stories are great, as is the illustration. An illustrator friend of mine says that it is very prestigious to be asked to illustrate a story in these magazines, and I figure it is the same for the stories. No advertising, of course. The thing I like the best is that each magazine is geared toward a certain age of child. Highlights tries to be something for everyone, so we look through the magazine to find an appropriate story. In Ladybug, we just start at the beginning and read straight through. As the publisher will tell you, when your child outgrows Ladybug, you just let them know and they change your subscription to Spider (and later, Cricket. That's as far as we've gotten).

5-0 out of 5 stars My FAVORITE Kid's Magazine
I loved this magazine when I was little! I still remember how it felt to get my own mail! There were a lot of pictures to keep me entertained, and a lot of fun activities. I read it, or had it read to me, it when I was 4,5, and 6. Any little kid would like this magazine!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Children's Magazine
We received this magazine as a gift subscription last December. Beautiful illustrations and interesting short stories with large letters so they are easy for children to read. My daughter (age 4) can read some of them herself, my son (age 3) looks at the words and the pictures and listens to my daughter read and I have even enjoyed reading this magazine from time to time. This is a great children's magazine! I recommend this magazine for children who have just learned to read and for children and parents to read together. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine That's Wholesome, Yet Fun!
Discovery Girls magazine is geared toward 8-12 year old girls, and the content and design of the magazine reflects that well. I appreciate the magazine for the fact that it highlights the achievements of regular girls and discusses everyday issues. Girls submit stories and poems, draw pictures, discuss different debate topics (e.g. "Is Brittney Spears a Good Role Model?") and there are no professional models! My daughter loves the fact that there are "reals girls" in the magazine and is thrilled by the possibility of being in it herself. I like this magazine because it is not your typical "teen" magazine in which boys and celebs seem to be the main focus. Discovery Girls focuses on everyday, ordinary girls and the issues they face in this transition into the teen years. Such topics include changing in front of other girls at school, dealing with bullies, when to wear a bra, and middle school fears. Of course there is the fun stuff too, such as embarrassing moments, crafts, contests, games, quizzes, fashion, and sports tips. I recommend it to mothers and daughters alike!

5-0 out of 5 stars Discovery Girls Magazine is off the chain!
Discovery Girls Magazine is really cool!
It has everything in it,from school to family to friends to pets.
My fav thing about this magazine is that I can actually read it w/o my mom looking though it first! It dosen't have all those people trying to show their skin or something like that. And they have REAL girls from REAL places that we live in. And it shows that you don't have to be a size 4 to fit in. I weigh 100 pounds, but it dosen't show because I have no bodyfat but all muscle.
I also like the mailbag because they don't just put the people's letters that say good things about them, but they also put in peoples conplaints and they try to fix them.

Please! Don't make a mistake, and pick up this magazine today!
GOD BLESS!
JESUS LOVES YA!

4-0 out of 5 stars It's ok....
Discovery Girls is kinda bad. I'm a 11 and I wana know bout celebs, music, movies and fashion. They seem to think fashion is wearing pink and putting little clips in ur hair. If ur 8-10 its perfect, but for those of you who are 11 and up, try something a little more grown up. But overall this mag is OK, i must say its better than american girl though.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Girls Magazine Ever!!!
This is the best girls magazine I have ever read and I've looked at almost all of them. If you are a parent who actually takes the time to teach your daughter the values of kindness, respect, compassion, and responsibility, this is the magazine for you. My daughter is 11 years old and absolutely loves it. We ordered all the back issues that they had available. I have recommended this magazine to all my friends and family with daughters. I am what Dr. Laura refers to "My kids' Mom" and we are very selective about what our four children read, watch, and play. This magazine is for and about real, wholesome, down-to-earth girls. The only negative thing I can think about this magazine is that it is published only every other month. I am hoping that one day they will change to a monthly publication.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not too good.
This magazine makes me feel like I should have these things for hobbies: Fashion, accessories, and the "cool" factor--DG is pop-starred instead of unique. Some of the accessories and clothes just aren't for our age--who needs to wear fake braids at 12?

But the worst is that DG makes you feel like you must worship it. It is our lives, after all, not the business status of the magazine that DG should be focused on! I don't want to be tied up to DG with the "do it like we say" messages.

There is the random article about new hobbies, and talented 8-12 year olds. But mostly it's taken up with the things we -think- are cool--but we need something new!!

Instead, something more "you-oriented" would be American Girl--try it! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars nick mag rox!
nick mag is a funny, creative magazine. It has a lot of pranks and great interviews. I wouldn't reccomend this to kids over the age of 13 as you may find some of this stuff a little too silly. But anyone else will love it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Nickelodeon Magazine
Nick Mag is a colorful magazine I would recommend for every kid. I especially like the pull-out pranks, which you tape on a container to trick parents. And also what's great about it is that they also have interviews with sport athletes and singers. In the April 2003 issue, they had a rate-your-fart chart. This magazine also has real facts, and chances to earn prizes. If you're thinking about ordering a kid's magazine, I recommend Nick Mag.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Mag EVER!!!!!
Nickelodeon magazine is the best magazine ever. I'm 11 and I started readeng Nick when I was 8 1\2, I loved it right away. It has everything, like pranks, comics (which are soooo funny), polls, contests, new movies, whats new on Nick, a few celebreties, and all around funny. On the June/July 2004 issue there is a super funny part titled Five Steps to Fame and it is Super Funny. I would recomend this for any child at the age around 8-14. It's easy to read, super funny and packed with every thing you can imagine.

5-0 out of 5 stars FUN MAGAZINE!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love this magazine!! It has alot of different and instersting subjects in each issue and it actually has real facts and sometimes you can learn from it. I love the interviews with the celebitrys and news a bout up comming movies!! It also has pranks , comics , jokes, and other cool things!! This is a great magazine that kids will want to read because it is not difcult to read and there are fun things to do!!
Another nice thing about it is that it is clean!! Even though celebritys and movies can be innoprapate this magazine cuts out all that stuff and leaves in the good things!!! I highhly reccomend this to evern kid from 9-13 years old

4-0 out of 5 stars A funny, interesting magazine.
There is stuff for everyone here: interviews, puzzles, interesting facts, contests, pull-outs, and a lot of humor. I really love this magazine and find it both interesting and funny. You don't have to like the channel to like this magazine. There is one star off because I'm a bit older then the demographic (I'm 12) so sometimes the humor consists of immature potty humor, but this is rare. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good short stories and activities
This magazine is expensive, but each issue contains several stories, activities like mazes, finding hidden items, and basic colors and counting. My son does not watch TV (his choice), but he likes the characters in this magazine, who are all friendly and likable to him.

I also recommend subscribing to the mediocre Parenting magazine, only because it includes an issue of Sesame Street magazine with every subscription-issue. Sesame Street magazine is better than Preschool Playroom because it has a much broader selection of information (includes animals, geography, and multi-cultural lessons) presented in a style that preschoolers enjoy. Just leave the Parenting magazine in the waiting room at the pediatrician's office.

3-0 out of 5 stars OK for younger viewer, and only if they know the characters.
Ordered this for my 3yo son. He was little beyond it and found it a bit boring. He also doesn't watch much of the younger kids TV, and so didn't know all the characters that are featured in each issue. Overall, it is probably OK for some, but not appropriate or useful for us.

I have a 2 1/2 year old and a 41/2 year old, they both love the magazine. It has characters that the kids know and are interested in. Lots of activities. My daughter went through the entire magazine in the first sitting and continues to go through it. The activities are right on target and don't frustrate her. I went to the bookstore and looked at all the magazines before I got a subscription. Some of the other mags have too many advertisements and are pushing their products. This has no advertisement pages in it. I liked the fact that it had activities that both kids were interested in doing. Counting and colors for 2 year old and writing and thinking skills for 4 year old. Highly reccommend. But, if you are looking for a subscription for your child, buy a few different single magazines for them to look at and see what they are interested in. You don't want to waste money on a mag they don't want. I was very happy with this one.

2-0 out of 5 stars Subscription problem
I ordered this magazine and never received it. I wrote to Amazon subscriptions and got an auto-reply. Still no magazine. Several months later, I finally recieved one copy. A big waste of money, but spending more time trying to get satisfaction probably wasting more time. Something is broken either with Amazon or with the magazine senders. Makes me hesitant to order magazines through Amazon. Magazine wasn't that clever - more like promotion of a select set of merchandizing characters.

5-0 out of 5 stars appropriate for 2 year olds and up
Unlike Nick Jr magazine, this is not full of ads, and the content is pretty much accessible to 2 yr old and up preschoolers with some activities that even 24 mo and up can attempt such as counting out / identifying all of the red toys etc. The stories included are also really sweet, about familiar characters and not too long hold my now 2 1/2 year old sons interest ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A great magazine but....
I like this magazine, but after a year of reading it, um you get older and it get's boring!! Though I like Disney, but there's a lot of advertisement, and it's really not that great. I mean you've already seen advertisement in t.v. or at the store, now magazines!! The comic section, I don't really like because well it's boring!! I hate comics!! I like the fill-out stuff and games. And when it's time for the Radiodisney Awards thingy it's cool. I like that part. But as a 11 year old, this a little bit too young for me. I recommend Popstar Magazine for ages 11 and up. And like other Teen magazines, sometimes they get boring because, there's more about like beauty and mushy gushy stuff, but I think it's okay, I recommend more of music or movie magazines is more interesting, for 11-12 year olds it's perfect. I hope you made a good choice of this magazine, if you like it or not. Check grocery stores, Barnes and Noble, or Borders to get this magazine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Humorous, Attractive, and Fun!
I bought a few of the Disney Adventures magazines, and had a lot of fun reading them! Packed with tons of activities, jokes, quizzes and more, you can easily get lost laying on your bed with this thriller. The comics are great, the "reader's participation" areas are a scream, and I loved the quizzes, it's fun to see if your teacher's an alien or your parents work for the CIA. I suggest this magazine to any kid, or any kid at heart!

2-0 out of 5 stars MOstly a waste of money
There's really not much of any substance here. My child often forgets to even read it.

3-0 out of 5 stars It's OK
My mom subscribed me to Disney Adventures last year when I told her I wanted to read magazines. It's OK. I like the comics, movie, TV, music, & book news, but there's a lot of ads & sometimes the print's too small. I recommend this magazine to other kids, but it's not the best.

2-0 out of 5 stars Too many advertisements - not enough content
My daughter loves getting mail and really looked forward to receiving this magazine - but there are WAY too many ads and the format is hard to read. She would look through each one briefly and just put it aside. My suggestion - Ranger Rick - she reads it cover to cover. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good, for the price.
This magazine is pretty good for the price. The issues are big, there are lots of breed, show, and tack articles, along with contests and opportunities to donate to equine funds. There aren't many ads and there are a ton of pictures, and a lot of the articles are fun. However, I wish this weren't bi-monthly, and though the articles are fun they can get really simple and dull after a while for older readers. I'm fourteen, but the other form doesn't work. Back to the point, it is also more aimed to the show and horse-owning set, like the one reviewer pointed out. There isn't much on horse care and safe riding, or any assurance that the best horse isn't always that fluffy blue-ribbon pony. That's why it gets three stars.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Magazine for Rich Eight-Year-Old Pony Owners
Young Rider is a very easy-to-read magazine aimed for young girls who own ponies. It is assumed that the reader shows and rides often. The magazine does have valuable information, a quiz (usually including mistakes) and an entertaining short story in each issue, not to mention the big, pretty posters which cover the walls in my room. However, the posters are double-sided, and only one is a lovely Mega Poster (the other is your average magazine-sized pullout that tears out of the staples). The annual camp listing is a very valuable feature for those searching for a horsey sleep-away camp. I particularly like the Help a Horse section which features a different horsey charity in each issue. My biggest problem with this magazine is the happy-go-lucky, overly simple writing style. You know, too much enthusiasm sometimes. I think Young Rider would be much better if it had a little more mature writing. Although much of it is suitable for regular riders, the Horse & Pony Problems section is frustrating for those who only take lessons and don't have the opportunity to select and practice daily excercises; it is definitely assumed you have your own horse. The Me & My Horse photos and some of the articles are made for horse owners as well. Overall, though, Young Rider is a nice magazine which I really do enjoy, and if you're an eight-year-old girl who has a pony, you'll really love Young Rider. ;-)

5-0 out of 5 stars Love This Magazine!
My 6 year old horse-loving daughter adores this magazine! She can read the articles and stories--they are well written and interesting and not too old for her, and she loves the games, quizzes and, of course, the pictures! She likes it so well we are going to get her a subscription of her own, as we have been having trouble finding it in the horse stores. It is wonderful someone makes a great magazine for the younger horse-lovers!

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!
This is an excellent magazine!! It's well-rounded for both english and western riders and has a good bit of grooming, medical care, and other topics related to horses tied in as well!And if focuses on a different educational club or a rescue organization nearly every month. Of course, it isn't perfect and can't teach you how to completly take care of or ride a horse, but what magazine, or book for that matter, can? Not even videos! You have to go out and get instruction! So, I don't think that just because it only hits the surface of some topics, that it should have a star taken. Excellent choice for the younger equestrians.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome mag!!!!!
Awesome mag for kids!!!great buy!lots of good articles,even if you don't have a horse of your own. Always has cool posters and stories that kids can relate to. Don't hesitate to buy this mag for any horseloving kid!Fun way to learn interesting things and facts about horses that you never knew. it's packed with contests too!only downside is that it is a bi-monthly mag (so good I wish it came more often!). Once again, it's a great choice for any child interested in horses. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good magazine for girls aged 8-10
Parents, if you are finding a magazine which doesn't focus on fashion, beauty, boys, and your little girl is aged 8-10, then I suggest you to buy this magazine.
This magazine is good because it covers pets to parties to real girl articles. It has no sexual, beauty and other things that you don't wish to be seen by your daughter.
For girls aged 12 or above, this magazine may be a little too girly for them, as they are now in high school, they might be having crushes, puberty and other embarrasing moments. If your girl is 12 or older, then I highly recommend you to Discovery Girl. It's a magazine filled with interesting articles in a helpful way for your children, embarrasing moments, and it also covers you a bit of fashion.
American Girl and Discovery Girl or both very good magazines,if you are not still sure what's good for your child, I suggest you to buy an issue of both magazines first.

4-0 out of 5 stars awesome..but it's too short
American Girl's just right for the parents who think their children aren't ready for teen magazines like Teen People and YM. American Girl doesn't have any articles about fashion or makeup, but there are plenty of articles about real girls and stuff like that. American Girl is perfect for girls ages 8 to 12. Girls 13 and older really should read teen magazines like Seventeen. The great thing about American Girl is that there are NO ADVERTISEMENTS!!!!! The bad thing is that American Girl is WAY too short. It's only about 50 pages long. Normal magazines around 150 pages. And the price is way expensive. I mean, 30 dollars for 6 magazines???? I recommend Girl's Life if you think that American Girl is too expensive. Girl's Life is a longer magazine and aimed for a little higher age group, like 10-14, but it's not really a "teen" magazine, but it has some advertisements in it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Magazine for Girls!
I've been getting this magazine for 3 years, and I LOVE it! It doesn't focus on drugs, boys, etc. but is more of a "girl power" magazine. It includes crafts, food recipes, true life stories, advice, and how to fight boredom! It includes things to do every day, and sometimes gives an address for a movie star. (i.e. Hilary Duff) I don't think I'll ever cancel this subscription!

4-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Mag
AG is an awesome mag it has everything. I'm 11 I started when I was 10 and even if it dosen't have stuff about boys, make-up and stuff like(but it would be nice to see more interviews) that they can still give it a girly feeling like once they put an article on manicures and another time they put a quiz on What your idea of fun?. It also has cool crafts like Micro Minis, or Photo Fun. It really helps girl to open up and be heared, like on the contests. Anyway it's AWESOME

4-0 out of 5 stars American Girl Reveiw
I think this is a great magazine for girls aged 8-10 because it dosn't concentrate on puberty or boys, but it has fun stuff to do and read for girls who just wana have fun and not worry about growinf up yet. BUT they say its for girls aged 8-12, but i dont think it is. I am now 11 and I used to LOVE american girl, but now I rarely buy it and I am into magazines with stuff about movies, music and celebs ect. So if you are a girl in between the ages of 8 and 10, then this is a wonderful magazine. But any older and you might find it a little immmature and boring. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Magazine
This magazine is excellent for children. I bought it for my son when he turned 1 year. He wasn't too interested at first (he's very active, but then at about 18 months, he started to enjoy it. We go over the pictures and read the stories together. He likes the fact that this is "his" magazine and that it comes through the mail. I agree with one of the comments above that a first grader can read it too while he/she is learning how to read. I am a first grade teacher and I was thinking of using the magazine with my students for guided reading. I also have been giving it as a gift to my friends' kids.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Magazine, well worth the price!
I often think NWF is making a mistake when advertising this as for children ages 1-3, because my child continued to enjoy it through first grade (during which time she was learning to read). It was something that came to her in her own name in the mail, was at her reading ability, and, at first grade, still interested her as far as the subject matter was concerned. Now that she is a third grader, she still is willing to read it to her little sister.
At 1.5 years, a child enjoys the great photos, but is still too young to grasp all the fun games. We have tried many children's magazines, but for up through first grade, this is really the best. I give it as gifts, especially to families with more than one child under the age of 7.

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the best purchases I've ever made...
This is a wonderful publication that my daughter absolutely loves. She started receiving "Wild Animal Baby" around 13 months of age and she was interested in it immediately. She is now 18 months and still pulls out every issue daily. She loves flipping through it on her own or bringing it to me so we can read it together. The pages are bright and colorful and have always held her interest. And it's so much fun, she doesn't know that she's learning.
My only complaint is that because these magazines are so well-loved, that the pages are starting to fall out. If the publisher can find a way to keep the pages from falling out, I would without a doubt give it all 5 stars. Even as is, I highly recommend it and will be ordering it as a gift for others.

4-0 out of 5 stars A "Must Subscribe" for Toddlers
When Animal Baby arrives at our house, it's like Christmas Day. Our 16-month-old absolutely loves it. It's colorful, imaginative and holds her interest from cover-to-cover.

My only knock against it is the construction. It is not, as indicated, a board book. It is of mid-weight carboard construction and it falls apart after a few handlings. All of our copies are taped together and our baby is not particulalry destructive.

So get a subscription and a roll of clear postal tape and you're in business.

5-0 out of 5 stars If you don't have it, get it today!!!
I really can not say enough good things about this magazine. It is like a little book with all sorts of things. It usally starts with a short story about a little kid and his/her pet, following by a short poem that asks you to identify the real animal shown on the next page. After that, it usually teaches some shapes or an alphabet letter using an animal picture, e.g. using Lion to teach letter 'L'. And then, you can read a short poem and do a little bit hand dance. Following that is an activity that both an animal and a little kid likes to or can do, e.g., a kid likes to eat strawberries just like a vole, or a kid can gallop like a horse, etc.. After that, it is another identifying animal game that asks you to guess which animal on the next page is the one that a kid in costume tries to immitate. And then, it is a matching game in which you match some body parts to the animals they belong that are shown on the following page. Finally, the big finish is a short story about the animal shown on the cover of each issue. If you like to have more fun activities, you can visit some web pages whose URLs are shown on the last page.

Both my 1- and 3-year-old kids love this magazine. Though my son has progressed to another magazine titled "Your Big Backyard", he still loves to read this one. He usually will finish reading it right away, once it arrives. My daughter is younger, she likes to ask me to read this "Wild Animal Baby" story to her again and again.

Since there are no annoying ads in this magazine and every issue really looks like a well-printed book, you can keep all the issues on the bookshelves for long long time so that you kids can go back and enjoy reading them whenever they want. It really is a money-saving way to buy good books without thinking twice about it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Made me who I am today
I received a gift subscription to this magazine from my aunt when I was 8 years old and kept every single issue I got in the mail until I turned 18 and my mother refused to keep paying for it (it is rather expensive). I have reread the hundreds of issues I have over and over and savored every possible detail. Because of this magazine, I became a happy appreciator of quality children's literature. Cricket doesn't talk down to children but respects their natural intelligence and curiosity. Fiction stories coexist with nonfiction, poems mingle with crosswords, beautiful illustrations appear next to photographs.

There have been numerous times when I (now 23) have spouted out random facts to my friends, only to admit (with a slightly pink face) that it was from an article in Cricket magazine that I read when I was 11. But this is a good example of the staying power of this magazine. It made me an English major. It made me a literature lover. It made me order my own subscription, in spite of being out of its targeted age range.

If you have a 7-8 year old that is starting to spend more time with books than with toys, or if you'd like your 7-8 year old to spend more time with books than with toys, consider ordering Cricket.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great way to start a lifelong passion for reading!
I was introduced to Cricket magazine through one of my teachers in early elementary school, and soon afterward my parents began a subscription for me. From then all the way up through middle school I devoured each issue cover-to-cover the moment it arrived. At first I found it a welcome challenge compared to the overly simple and mundane classroom books of the "Mac the cat sat on a mat" variety. Even after I had surpassed the magazine in my reading ability, I continued to enjoy it for the content of the stories. Even my mother loved to read it.

The magazine provides a great collection of well-selected stories that open up an entire world for the young reader, and each issue usually has a particular theme (i.e. the Middle Ages, horses, Chinese culture, food, etc.). Some of the stories are excerpted from longer pieces and some are short works in their own right. The magazine spans all genres of literature; includes both fiction, non-ficiton, and poetry; and addresses such important themes as culture, history, family and friends, growing up, and much more. Some pieces have serious and valuable morals, while others are just plain fun.

The magazine also offers book recommendations, a comic strip, a crossword puzzle, jokes, and contests for art, photography, fiction, and poetry. Moreover, each issue is beautifully illustrated. I believe the artwork in this magazine did much to inspire my own early artistic endeavors. I would highly recommend this magazine to parents and teachers alike. The stories are excellent material for young readers, and would also be great to read aloud to children. On the whole, this is a terrific blend of recreation and education! The makers of Cricket also offer other magazines for different age levels - Spider, Ladybug, and Babybug for the younger ones, and Cicada for adolescents.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cricket continues to deliver quality
The Fong family is now a multi-generation Cricket household. I loved it as a kid and now my daughters (ages 7, 5 & 2) are enjoying every issue as well. Cricket wins on many levels. As a parent the stories, poems, games and cartoons deliver good, wholesome entertainment you won't mind reading to your kids again, and again, and again.... We save every issue and re-read our favorites regularly.

The different age level magazines Carus offers (Cricket, Spider, Ladybug and Babybug) make them great "independent reading" material as well.

Finally, I don't know of a single kid who isn't thrilled to receive real "snail mail" once a month!

5-0 out of 5 stars Cricket Magazine Has Been a Favorite For Years
My mom set up a subscription to Cricket for me back in 1976 when I was in elementary school. I always loved reading and wasn't happy with the same old "See Spot Run" books. Mom saw that I was getting bored with the same old stuff and decided to give the magazine a try.

I got the first few issues and didn't really do anything with them. But once a rainy day came around, I decided to pick them up and give them a try. After that, I was hooked on the stories, the artwork, the games, and the contests the magazine runs each month. Each issue had its own theme and I always found the quality to be top notch. I found out Cricket had only came to be a few years earlier and went to the library with my dad to dig up some back issues.

I was introduced to such writers as Shel Silverstein, Lloyd Alexander, Walter De La Mare, Clifton Fadiman, Robert Frost, Carl Sandburg and William Shakespeare. I find myself coming back to Cricket time and again. I still have my original issues and hope to share them with my kids once they're older. They truly have a timeless quality.
I highly reccommend this magazine to parents whose children have expressed an interest in reading.

5-0 out of 5 stars good stuff
This is a fun magazine for tweens and young teenage girls. I'm in my twenties and I was flipping through this magazine and I must say that its a nice alternative to magazines like Seventeen and Ym. I'm so glad that there's a positive magazine for teen girls.

The sections are:

short stuff-which is news and interesting facts

dear carol-advice columnist

friends-how to deal with your friends

fashion blast-of course these are clothes that they advertise

some are cute while others are too inappropriate from my view.

beauty-they advertise certain beauty products

body Q & A-they answer questions about girls bodies

guys-girls ask advice from guys, to get the guy's perspective on a certain issue.

life-another section that deals with life issues like parents that are fighting or dealing with friends.

they have sections devoted to movies, music, interviews with celebrities like Mandy Moore, they recommend books that teen girls might like, some articles deal with how to act with guys.

There are many other articles on interviewing teen girls that have their own businesses, the issue that I got...June/July 2003, tells how to make money, a section dedicated to getting healthy,and 29 awesome things to do this summer.

They also have a pen pal section for those girls that want to have pen pals, and of course no teen magazine would be complete without a fashion spread.

I thought that it was an overall positive magazine for teen girls and I highly recommend it. I don't think that its too girly girly and its articles have more depth than magazines like YM. They focus on other things besides beauty and entertainment.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Alternative to the Superficiality of Teen Girls' mags
It's unfair that, as one of the smaller magazines, Girl's Life is often overlooked as one of the best, most positive magazines for girls in their pre-to early teens. I read this magazine from ages 10-12, and greatly enjoyed it. Although it appears they've since gone for a more mainstream, teen-friendly look, they've always stood by content that's fun and engaging teen fare- Advice, Fashion, Entertainment, Quizzes, etc. But the difference about this content is that Girl's Life injects it with a healthy, refreshing realism. Self-esteem is a key issue here- sure, they inform you of the latest fashions, but they always picture real-looking girls, and don't tell you your social life will be over if you don't own the latest miniskirt. Sure, boys are discussed, but they're never going to make a cover story or take precedence over articles about friends and family. Add to all this great stories and a great pen-pals feature, and you have the thinking girl's teen magazine.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's good but it should...
take out all the fitness infos and advices to make the magazine age- appropriate. The stories are good and the celeb info are just right for celeb lovers and people who would like to skip this part. If you have only seen the cover of the mag, you would get the impression that girls life is a teen celeb mag, but actually, this magazine only features a little bit of celeb, which is a good thing because GL has tons of fun stuff that no other mag has. I recommend parents to buy one issue to try first.

5-0 out of 5 stars A World to Escape to
I am just turning 11 years old, and have already found out more than literacy, arithmacy, and spelling. I have learned about Goldberg machines, swords, moon hoaxes (?), ancient mummies, cats, dogs, and why we get hiccups. I have learned how directors create movie monsters, how some beleive the world will someday come to an end, and about the theories of "Snowball Earth." And these are only 10 of the literely 100's of things I've learned. This is all thanks to Muse Magazine. It is Muse that teaches hundreds, thousands, possibly millions of things to children all over the world. Things from the possibility of having the same birthday as another kid in an average 25 student class, to how the modern fork made it's way to the table. And through all this learning, the reader may laugh at the crazy antics of the 9 Muse characters. They don't even think about the learning going on, and if they did compare it to their history class, taught by the monotone voice of unenthusiastic Mr. Boring, then they'd refuse to go to school, and demand a new Muse every day. This is a world to escape to for them, a place for learning and laughs, things very important to loving parents.

5-0 out of 5 stars MUSE
MUSE is a publication for children/adolescents that covers a variety of topics in every issue, from science, history and everything in between.
Several articles are published in each issue and are fun and entertaining with humour commonly encountered. The subjects are different every issue, from forks to feet.
There are 9 cartoon muses, each with their own distinct personality and traits. They portray comic accompaniments to the articles in the margins, and are the spotlight of the MUSE mail section, where the readers write to and dispute with the characters. They also have their own cartoon pages and columns.
A strategy page, `Did you Know?' fact page, parody page and competitions are included in every issue.
Whenever you finish a MUSE magazine for the first time, you always await the next one eagerly, and MUSE can be read over and over again, you will giggle at the humour for ages.
9 issues are published each year, monthly except for May-June, July-August and November-December.
MUSE is the rebel of magazines for children 9-14, not focusing on fashion or glamour. Many confronting ideas are brought up in each issue and I recommend it to anyone, you are bound to take an interest in it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Muse is the best!!!
Muse is a great magazine. It's ideal for kids ages 10-14, I think. Anyway, I love it because it doesn't focus on just one subject, but gives readers a wide variety of cool stuff to read and think about, from math to science to elvish poems. Plus, everything is written in a way that a kid can understand, and of course, in a spirit of comedy and regular strangeness. Muse is the best!!!

Muse is simply the best magazine ever written for kids. Unless you prefer sports and fashion to science and genral weirdness,get this magazine!

5-0 out of 5 stars Muse Rocks!
Muse is really cool. This magizine is great because the articles they put in it are so diverse. Some great ex. are bug splats, tenrecs(rodents from Madagascar), glass art, chess, L.O.T.R., and
hoxes. There are charecters that wander around in the margins.
Also there are contests and a mail page. I would've given this magizine a 1,000,000,000,000 star rating, but the computer wont let me. This is a very interesting magizine that I have learned
alot from. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Children's Magazine
This is an outstanding, sturdy magazine. I recommend it for all preschoolers.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for 2 yrs & Up
I have been receiving Babybug for 3 years now and my four year old daughter still enjoys every issue. The repeated charaters (Kim and Carrots) get her excited and help bring a flow from magazine to magazine. The short stories and illustrations are lovely.

The only reason I did not give this a 5 star rating is that my daughter did not start enjoying this magazine until she was 18 to 24 months (not 6 months as is suggested by the age). Now my two year old son is enjoying the stories as well as my daughter. I plan to use these as "early readers" for my daughter as the are fast reads.

5-0 out of 5 stars Either my friend is crazy or this magazine is for all ages!
I got a free issue of Babybug from Carus Pub., and my friend told me that, being in 3rd grade, loves it!!! She read them all the time! Either she's crazy or this magazine can be enjoyed universally!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Pleasant Suprise
My parents gave my son a subscription to BabyBug as a present for his first birthday, and when the first issue arrived I have to confess I wasn't impressed. Most of the stories were short -some, only a two page spread- and many of the stories & art seemed remarkably bland. Well, what do I know? My son LOVES it! The brevity of the stories suits his tiny attention span, and the "bland" stories about kids falling down or picking flowers or what-have-you fascinate him. He clearly relates to the simplicity of the stories revolving around toddlers.
The magazine itself is nicely put together- the pages are sturdy enough to withstand juice spills and rough handling, and the size is just right for a small hands. I appreciate the lack of advertising, too. (Although I should note that each issue is stuffed with subscription cards. Better to pluck these out before you hand it to your kid.)
All in all a terrific magazine for the very young, and a great idea for a shower gift.

5-0 out of 5 stars great!
My daughter loved this. It was a wonderful gift from grandma that was appreciated month after month by mom and baby. ... Read more
