Reviews & Giveaways

National Geographic Little Kids Magazine,My oldest daughter is 5 and since she just learned to read, books have a whole new meaning to her. She has her own collection, plus ones she brings home from the school library. Yet, she tends to love magazine-type books, ones that teach her about Animals and the world around her. I had the opportunity to review a few issues of National Geographic Little Kids Magazine, which she dove into at first glace {no surprise}.

The National Geographic Kids Magazines are geared towards preschoolers, aged 3-6. Each 24-page issue is filled with the same colorful and vivid pictures of animals, nature and cultures that made National Geographic famous. With the photos is plenty of educational information which is written in a kid-friendly manner. This makes it easy for the to understand and keeps their attention. All my girls love the photos, and my oldest daughter likes that she can easily read these magazines. She is always sharing new information that she has learned, and is very eager to get more issues. Each issue also has fun pull-out wild animal cards with animals, and a little bit of information on the back, for each animal. My daughter has taken a few of these cards with her to Kindergarten, when they are talking about those specific animals that day. As well, there is more activities and games {even little science experiments} too – these little magazines are so jam-packed with great stuff for kids, it’s ideal for your little explorer.

The Association of Educational Publishers chose National Geographic Little Kids for its highest award, the Golden Lamp, in 2008 and named the magazine Periodical of the Year in 2008 and 2009. National Geographic Little Kids also won a Parents’ Choice Gold Award for 2008, 2009 and 2010.

National Geographic Little Kids Magazine is available by subscription for $15 a year in the US {six issues; Canadian and international subscription costs varies}.
