Warren sent us an e-mail: My son loves getting mail. Even though he's 4, he gets so excited whenever he gets anything.
My wife and I thought it be fun for him to get his own magazine subscription in the mail. He's still a little too young for Highlights, and while we like Babybug and Ladybug magazine, there's just no way we're going to spend $35 on a subscription. Do you have anything else you can recommend that's fun and affordable?"
Good question, Warren.There are actually several toddler and preschooler magazine choices out there. When there's a niche, someone will fill it, right?
Apart from Ladybug and Babybug, there's Your Big Backyard and Wild Animal Baby both published by the National Wildlife Federation. Highlights also offers High Five which is aimed at younger children.
Our son receives National Geographic Little Kids, and he really enjoys it. The magazine is just the right size for preschool hands, has a ton of pictures and illustrations and like the grown-up version of National Geographic, Little Kids exposes preschoolers to the world around them. And we love that our subscription was only $15.
What about you? Is there a hidden gem out there you'd like to recommend to Warren?
