The National Geographic Little Kids magazine is packed with teaching tools to help parents inspire a love of learning in their children. 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.
The photographs of the animals are great, and my kids and I really enjoy talking about the animals, like what they do, where they live, what they eat, etc. The National Geographic Kids magazine has 24-pages in each issue contains animal stories, answers to questions on kids’ favorite topics, features on different cultures to inspire a sense of understanding about the world, plus interactive experiments to introduce simple science. My kids love the cards inside the magazine, and love to pretend that they are trading cards (like their older brother has trading cards). There are a set of six cards inside each magazine that come out, and have pictures of animals with their facts on it.
I really like how the National Geographic Little Kids is a perfectly sized magazine for little hands, and my kids love imitating us by holding their magazine and sitting in the chair. I love that my kids "teach" each other about what they are learning in their National Geographic Little Kids magazine. This great children's magazine is available by subscription for $15 a year (six issues; international subscription cost varies) and on newsstands for $3.99 a copy.
Parents can explore online with their kids at littlekids.nationalgeographic.com.
We recommend this great magazine for your family! My kids love it, and we are happy to share this with you!
