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 Thanks American Baby!
I can't think of any other company, especially children or parenting magazines that even offers a free subscription like American Baby does although I don't mind paying for mine. I love the articles and the advertising, and I was blessed enough to have my little girl's face in the May issue this year 2004! I haven't seen the actual copy yet so I am extremely excited to get my issue from the mail box!
Keep up the good work!

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Worth It
This was so not worth it. My parents were able to scrape enough money together to surprise me with a subscription to this when I was pregnant with my first child. SInce I didn't know this, I had applied for the free subscription. Well, lets just say that between both subscriptions I didn't even recieve all of the issues. And the few that I did recieve, I was dissapointed with. There were several wonderful articles but most of it was just fluff. Every time there were baby gear recommendations, it was almost always from the more expensive end of the line. They need to do reviews on everything available so we can make better informed choices. It's as if they assume that all women have thousands of dollars to spend when they start having their children. I had $500 and I was lucky to have that. When there were coupons, it was always for stuff that I didn't or couldn't use.

1-0 out of 5 stars rediculous
I am not a parent, though I love children .... some how have been recieving magazines which I had not requested nor ordered ....now I suppose they will soon be sending me bills as well. I do not appericate companies like theese to buy peoples information in the effort to bill them unnessiarly. It in mine eyes is REDICULOUS!!! So I in the future will NOT be in any way promoting this company ... besides the fact that I am currentially strugling with finances, and have enough to deal with on theese hectic holiday seasons such as this one, I would like to say please ,NO MORE. (I request removel from your mailing list.) Happy Holidays... God Bless

1-0 out of 5 stars Way too many ads for formula!
This magazine has a lot of fluff and not much substance. It is not that informative - Parents, Parenting, and esp. Mothering are much better. Also, it is not very nursing friendly and is full of ads for formula.

This magazine is available for free from packets you'll get at ob office or hospital (maybe due to sponsorship by formula companies?) ... Read more

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 IT'S SO AWESOME
THIS MAGAZINE IS FUN,COOL,AND HELPS YOU WITH PROBLEMS.
THIS IS GREAT FOR10-15 YEAR OLD KIDS.THIS MAGAZINE IS AWESOME!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine!
I always like reading GL because the advice (like "Dear Carol") is really good, the interviews (like with Harry Potter) are excellent, and the fiction and features are interesting and fun. My daughter loves it and I have to admit, I do too--which I can't say for all the teen magazines out there! ... Read more

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!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars MUSE
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

4-0 out of 5 stars Different from all the rest
I had never heard of Child magazine until I picked up a copy at my gym. The layout and look of the magazine intrigued me. I had received a year's worth of Parenting and other magazines that most parents get free for their baby's first year of life. They were okay, but Child immediately captivated me with the quality of the photography, writing and content. I love their columns and focus on providing a happy childhood for my daughter with their tips on games, crafts and vacations. I'll admit that a lot of their products and clothing are ridiculously expensive, but I figure that it gives me a good idea of what I should look for in stores in my price range: Target & Ross. If you are looking for a child and parenting magazine that is different from everything else out there, then Child is for you!

2-0 out of 5 stars Lifestyles of the Rich and Teething
"Child" is a lovely to look at magazine that reeks of quality. Sadly, though, it also reeks of pretension and $$$.

Anyone with the tiniest bit of a jealous streak will go apoplectic perusing even a few pages. Every mother pictured is drop-dead gorgeous (in a "freak of nature" kind of way), all the children are attired in clothing that requires a second mortgage, and fathers are obviously tycoons that sold off their dot-com business for several billion and now just tend the yacht. Every house is furnished with the original Scandinavian furniture that IKEA rips off so elegantly for those of us who can't fly to Denmark to get the originals. The ads are clearly aimed at those willing to buy handcrafted Italian strollers and $500 seersucker suits for junior's Easter appearance at church.

This is no exaggeration. A recent edition looked at the best spas for expectant mothers to visit. Another article capped boys' fashions with a pair of $90 shorts. And lastly, a recommended hotel for moms to get away with their girlfriends is The Four Seasons in Chicago. It's only $1200 a night. And while Hoover or even Dyson might advertise in your "normal" parenting magazines, Electroluxe gets the nod here.

The magazine, as noted, is easy on the eyes and probably wins mountains of design awards. Every page has a clean sense of style that cops a European sensibility. The articles fall into the category of nothing over twenty-five hundred words (with most articles around a thousand or fifteen hundred), keeping the magazine in line with all the others who have adopted the short attention span style made popular by USA Today--but always with that exclusive country club feel. The total pages are a bit over a hundred fifty and the ads don't overwhelm the actual content (although it the average reader might find it difficult to separate the two.)

Anyone wanting to know how the children of the other half live should pick up "Child." For those of us who shop at JC Penney, stick with something less tony.

4-0 out of 5 stars GReat mag...one of my favoirtes
CHILD is the InStyle of Kids fashion, kid-related housewares and cooking and craft ideas. I love the format and the asthetics of the layout really appeal to me. This is a classy mag at a VERY affordable price.

1-0 out of 5 stars A magazine to make (real) moms feel bad...
My subscription to Child just expired. Despite the dozens of cards that the magazine sent to my house to entice me to resubscribe, I held my ground and decided not to renew (I'm picking up Parents again, though).
My daughter is almost a year and a half old. I am a full time professional and a full time mom. My time is valuable and I appreciate helpful parenting tips and creative ideas for quality time with my daughter. If you're looking for the same thing... Avoid this magazine!
My friends and I compare this magazine to Living (the Martha Stewart magazine). It's beautiful. The ideas, if you actually have time to do them, look amazing. But I'm a real world mom with real world constraints. I don't have time to whip up Halloween costumes from scratch using silk shantung (yes, the magazine actually suggested it in the October 2003 edition) - and quite frankly, I don't have dresses made of shantung in my own closet. Meals for my daughter are simple and while I love to cook, I won't be hunting in the aisles for barley flour or smelt to make homemade bread for my family.
The outfits are beautiful, but again, they aren't realistic options for most folks. I am an attorney (my husband is, too). We do okay financially. I like for my daughter to look nice, and we dress her well... But $80 for a sweater for a toddler? $75 for a pair of pants? C'mon. Many of the "featured" outfits cost more than my best dress suit! Again, cute but not practical.
And the articles about parenting and health care? I don't find them helpful at all; most often, I find them condescending. A recent feature on busy schedules completely ignored the plight of the working mom altogether. Another feature on better sleep patterns for children focused on extreme sleep disorders, rather than offering practical advice for the majority of families.
This magazine isn't about real families. Where are the arts and crafts with macaroni? What about homemade play dough? Not in this magazine. And free time? My daughter likes to play in leaf piles and finger paint, not sit quietly at formal events.
Maybe somewhere, some moms enjoy this magazine. It seems to have generated some fairly high reviews on this site. However, my friends and I give it a thumbs down. After every issue, I felt like I was the world's worst mom. And the time I spent thumbing through the issue? I could have spent that time with my daughter.
The bottom line: All style and no substance. Spend your money elsewhere.

5-0 out of 5 stars A good, serious publication for parents
I like this magazine for a lot of reasons, but my admiration is primarily for their willingness to provide solid, thoughtful reporting without pandering to the lowest-common-denomiator reader. This is not to say it's a high-brow publication--it's not. Rather, Child carefully avoids publishing the type of mindless pap that so many parenting publications pack into every issue (i.e., "25 Ways to Tie your Shoes!" or "Picnics with Peanut Butter!" or "What Your Child's Doctor Won't Tell You About Lice!"). Child is a well written, well designed magazine that is readable, informative and, frankly, cheap. I can't ask for more than that! ... 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.

I really love this magazine because, first of all, I love Genealogy! And this magazine is a great source of information whether you are just starting out on your family search or if you've been hitting the archives for years.
And it is WEB oriented which is just what I'm looking for as I do a lot of research online. Family Tree Magazine always has new or important search tips. I learned to check characteristics of old photos for clues in narrowing a search for birth years when you don't have an exact date. Then I looked in the census for years around that time period to find the person I was looking for. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT!
I love New Moon it is perfect for the girl who isn't totally ready for J-14 or Teen People but has good enough stuff for young teens. It is filled with great stories and uplifting advice. 5 Stars all the way.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Mag Ever
I have been getting this magazine for about a year and a half, and I loved it ever since the very first issue. It is a magazine where girls can just speak their minds about whatever they want. I have even submitted a story to it, though I dont know if it got accepted or not. All in all, this magazine is perfect for any girl who just wants to be herself.

2-0 out of 5 stars It's Either One Extreme or Another...
In the case of girls' magazines, the most common kind is like Seventeen: they give advice about boys, makeup, fashion, and anything else a teenage girl might want to know. However, many find this offensive or sexist, as not all girls want to dress in the latest fashions and have boyfriends all the time. That's where New Moon comes in, a magazine for girls that isn't all about appearances. It's for girls who are genuine; girls who don't need a boyfriend to feel secure.

Or so they want you to believe. When I first read an issue of New Moon, I was immediately offended. The magazine functions on the pretense that it's real, not fake, but in fact it's based on the constant putting-down of girls who read magazines like Seventeen. Not only that, but the male sex is repeatedly insulted, with an entire section of the magazine devoted to griping about boys. If a boys' magazine had a section devoted to complaining about girls, wouldn't we find it easy to see it as offensive? New Moon is a classic example of sexism reversed. It tells girls they're nothing but mindless materialists if they wear makeup. It tells them they shouldn't have boyfriends. It doesn't reassure insecure girls; it merely drives them to a different artificial existence than Seventeen does.

It seems, in the world of girls' magazines, that there are only extremes: live life as a badly-dressed boy-hater; or as a boy-obsessed, mindless follower of pop culture. I, personally, would rather read Seventeen. At least it doesn't pretend to be something it's not--a wholesome magazine meant to make girls' lives more meaningful, something New Moon does not achieve.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not for elementary kids
I am an elementary school library media specialist. I have always wanted to subscribe my library to New Moon and this year I did that. It sounded like a great magazine that would have a more substantial focus than, say, Girls' Life. And it is a great magazine. The reason I have given it four stars instead of five is that anytime you see an age range like 8-14, you need to think twice about whether this will be appropriate for your child. Fourteen year olds are developmentally in a much different place than eight year olds. It's like saying a third grader and an eighth grader can be satisfactorily served by the same information and point of view. This is still a great magazine, but in the first issue I received there was a long article about the problems you can have when getting your period. Even as progressive as I like to think I am, this seems a little advanced for seven year olds. And some of the topics are a little edgy... things which might not be a big deal in Portland, Oregon(I have visited there and found people there to be much more relaxed about these things than at home in Indiana) would raise a lot of eyebrows if shared with elementary students here in the heartland. I'm not saying this isn't a great magazine, I love it and I find its messages very positive, but I probably won't order it again for my library. And I would caution anyone who is thinking about ordering it that this magazine may not be appropriate for girls at the bottom of the age range the magazine serves.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great magazine for girls.
This mag is way better than those puff piece magazines (girls life/ Teen et.al.) which seem to try and help girls by selling them cosmetics, and give bad advice about boy friends. It has real stories and its well edited. Highly recommended. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Our number 1 pick, even over Ladybug
My curious 3 1/2 yr old pre-schooler is absolutely fascinated by the themes in this magazine. A few of the articles are above his level which means I will be saving the magazine in a slipcase for future re-reading. The last issue I received was on the theme of magnification -- and we played with a magnifying glass and now more than a month later he enjoys pulling out a magnifying glass and magnifying all of the teeny tiny objects that catch his interest like the little metal balls in mazes, ants outside the house etc... Don't pass on this one, it has in depth articles, and plenty of pictures to engage a young ones interest too. What a great opportunity for open ended learning!

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great Magazine for Pre-Readers/Emerging Readers
I've been subscribing to Click, along with its sister publication, Ladybug, for about 2 years now. It's a great way to introduce the "real world" to my 5-year-old.

As an earlier review noted, each issue has a specific theme. For example, the last few issues were titled "At The Zoo", "In The Night Sky", "In The Islands", and "Busy Cities". This makes each issue like a mini-book, to be read and re-read, depending on your child's interest in the topic of the month.

Even if the current issue's topic doesn't engage your child, he/she will still want to read it, if only to see the recurring features, such as "Click & The Kids" and "Yo Wants To Know". This combination is a great way to introduce new topics in a familiar setting.

The writing is fresh and much more interesting to young minds than what you find in some other kids' magazines. Each story is well-illustrated. A given issue will have a variety of types of writing - cartoons, photoessays, non-fiction articles, 4-5 page fiction stories, and ideas of things to do.

This mix is great for kids with variable attention spans - if he/she can sit for 30 minutes, you can read the whole magazine. If 5 minutes, or 15 minutes, is today's limit, you can find something to fit that span.

Finally, as another reviewer noted, the magazine is written at several different comprehension levels, meaning that it spans the suggested age range quite well, with something for everyone, and that you can go back and read old issues with more mature eyes and get a new experience.

All in all, this magazine has been a great source of information for my son, and I recommend it highly.

5-0 out of 5 stars Click and we're off !
Click is a kids magazine that addresses the physical world in a way that appeals across a broad age range.

The Cricket Group seems to have cut its teeth on first literary magazines (Spider and Cricket), but Click is the complement, discussing the real concrete world of "people who work at night", "where things come from", "on the moon", and "surviving in the desert".

The articles range from early read-it-yourself to longer listening stories. Recurring cartoons with text "Clicks and the kids", "Yo wants to know" and "Beatrice Black Bear" are perennial favorites.

The real magic to Click is that it is a preferred read for both our 7 and 4 year olds. That is a tough spread, but Click has and is the favorite. When its time to read to both, or time for a warm comfort, Click is it.

When you order, find a safe place to keep the issues, because they will be read and re-read. And if you are doing the re-reading, you may want to refresh with last year's issue.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent magazine
My four year old and seven year old enjoy this magazine which is published by the Smithsonian and Cricket. Working with one theme (ie, gardens, animal homes, working animals, flight, communication, etc.) the magazine presents the material with stories, comic strips, non-fiction articles and games. The issues are 36 pages long, not too long to read in one sitting, but thorough and satisfying. The photographs and illustrations are attractive and informative. The only complaint I have about it is that there are only nine issues in twelve months, a problem in my house since my older children's magazines come every month. Otherwise, this is an excellent magazine and well worth the money. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great magazine!
I have found that "Instructor Magazine" helps me to stay on top of what is new in education. It has everything from "Web-quests" to in-service ideas. They have ideas for every subject, profile classrooms, authors, they even include a poster with corresponding lessons that go along with it. I love it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for high school levels too!
I subscribed to this magazine for useful tips I could use for my own children. Not only did I find that helpful, I have also used the information to apply to my high school classes. Thank you for the wonderful ideas!

3-0 out of 5 stars Insight and Ideas

3-0 out of 5 stars Disney(world) Magazine
I agree with the others here who have pointed out that this is truly a magazine about Disneyworld. The entire point of the magazine seems to be to encourage the reader to visit the Orlando half of the American Disney Empire. I have rarely seen an article on the real Disneyland. I have been very disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful
I have been receiving the Disney Magazine for the past three years. I absolutely love it. I look forward to every issue. I read it from cover to cover at least five time, but my favorites are the hidden pics and the calendar of events as to what is going on when and where at the theme parks. I also love when there are articles from behind the scenes at the theme parks. I have been a huge fan of Disney since I was a child. Having a subscription to this magazine is just one more way I can enjoy Disney. So thank you for giving me this opportunity to say thank you.

3-0 out of 5 stars Could be worse...
Disney Magazine isn't exactly what I was hoping for--it has very little to do with animation, or what the Disney Company is doing, and a heck of a lot to do with Disneyworld in Orland, Florida.

This may be alright for some, but if I want to know more about ANY park, it would be the original and greatest, Disneyland!

I think Disney Magazine needs to get their priorties straight, or change their name to 'Disneyworld Quarterly'

3-0 out of 5 stars Good, but...
I wouldn't pay money for it. We get it as a part of our Annual Pass to the true park (Disneyland). The magazine, for the most part, seems to be a giant advertisment for DisneyWorld. Most articles and recipes are from the Orlando parks. There have been a few good articles on animation and filmmaking, but aside from that, it's not really worth the money.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected
I was mistaken that this magazine was for children. I purchased a subscription for my 5 year old daughter and she was HIGHLY disappointed. If it is for kids, they must be much older so that they can comprehend the more difficult reading. Adults who enjoy Disney may want this magazine, but it is not for kids under 11-12. There is nothing fun about it and I'm asking for a refund. ... Read more
