Parents' Choice Foundation: Reviewing Children's Media Since 1978



Spring 2016 Magazines
Ages: Infant - 3 yrs.
Newsstand Price: $6.95
Subscription Price: $33.95 / 9 Issues

This appealing, small-scale magazine for Cricket Media's youngest demographic is crafted like a softcover baby book, with hard-wearing, glossy pages and non-toxic ink. A simple mix of fantasy and real life-based subject matter, it features short-short stories, activities, and poems, accompanied by colorful illustrations and photographs. Each issue begins with a "Kim and Carrots" story revolving around a little girl and her toy rabbit; recent themes include "big and little," the wind, the beach, and the colors of spring. A brief "Guide for Caregivers," related to a specific theme, offers ways that parents and other caregivers can enhance the reading experience for their baby or toddler, with more suggestions at the magazine's digital site.
