Classic Children's Magazines + Contest

Raise your hand if these magazines were a part of your childhood. I was a real bookworm as a kid and I absolutely LOVED getting these magazines in the mail. I would devour each issue when it arrived, doing all the puzzles, reading all the articles, and making the crafts. Each magazine has just won a 2013 Parents’ Choice Award from the Parents’ Choice Foundation!
Turtle Magazine is created just for preschoolers, ages 3-5 years old. It's filled with lots of colorful illustrations and wonderful read-aloud stories. Real photos accompany some of the articles, as well. One of my favorites was always finding the hidden objects on a page. When I was teaching preschool, I used these in my classroom.
Humpty Dumpty Magazine is written for ages 5-7 years old. My mom would always help me make the simple recipes in each issue. Written for young readers, the stories are always appropriate and inspiring. I loved the "find the differences" puzzles and would race my sisters to find them first. These are perfect after-school activities to keep kids busy and away from the tv.
Jack and Jill is the magazine for ages 7-12 years old. The short stories and articles are adventurous and encourage children to be their best. From fun quizzes to challenging puzzles, this magazine targets elementary school kids' creativity and thinking skills. As a child, I felt very grown-up reading Jack and Jill. As a parent, I was more than happy to provide my kids with good, virtuous reading materials!

CONTEST ALERT!
It's time for the Jack and Jill, Humpty Dumpty, and Turtle Magazines 13th Annual Cover Contest. The deadline for submissions is this coming Monday March 25th. Kids will be very excited to draw a picture on this year’s topic, “My Best Day Ever”!
