    How is your child’s Summer Journal coming along?  How about the Summer Reading Club?  (Reread or check out my June Blog about Summer Activities if you are unfamiliar with the Summer Journal and Summer Reading Club)

If you have encountered some resistance this summer about reading and writing from your kiddo, I have a suggestion.  By the way, my granddaughter told me the journal I prepared for her was still too much like school.  Oh well…

    My recommendation is to try a children’s magazine instead of a book.  I have found magazines to be very popular with youngsters, including my own kids when they were growing up, and my elementary students during my teaching career.

    Here are just some of the reasons I think kids’ magazines are of value:

Promotion of reading enjoyment.
Inviting pictures.
Stimulation of ideas for further research on a topic of interest.
Short articles.
Timely articles about appropriate news for kids.
Change of pace.

The following is a list of magazines I recommend as I have used these extensively at home and at school.  I am also including a price for subscription after a recent Internet search.

Ranger Rick, ages 4 – 7, and ages 7 – 12.  Two different editions, $15 for one year (10 issues).
Highlights, ages 6 – 12, $34.44 for one year (12 issues).  Yes, this is pricey, but includes more pages and more activities.
Sports Illustrated for Kids, ages 8 – 15, $19.95 for one year (12 issues).
National Geographic for Kids, ages 6 and up, $24.95 for one year (10 issues).

The best part about kids’ magazines, YOU DON’T HAVE TO BUY A SUBSCRIPTION. 
Go to your local library in the children’s section.  You will probably find these magazines and others that can be checked out just like a book.  IF  your child shows a definite interest in a certain magazine, THEN, order a subscription.  You could even include this as a surprise birthday gift.  Better yet, tell Grandma or Grandpa to order a subscription.  You would need to order about 6 weeks – 2 months before the actual birthday.
You can also find children’s magazines online.  I Googled “children’s magazines” and several sites came up.  Scroll down and at the bottom of the first page, you will find various categories, such as Christian Children’s Magazines, Free Children’s Magazines, etc.

God bless, enjoy those kids, and have a relaxing summer!  Come back the first week of August for another Blog:


Let me know how the journaling and reading clubs are going.  Love to hear from you.
