Make Reading Fun With Educational Magazines for Kids

Parents and teachers are constantly on the hunt for educational materials that kids will find entertaining. This can be a difficult balance to strike, but few options make this task look easy quite like kids' magazines.

The Many Benefits of Educational Magazines for Kids

It's common for parents of school-age children to worry if their kids read enough. This fear is especially relevant given how much screen time today's youngsters demand. Keeping them away from smartphones and engaged in the written word can seem challenging, but it doesn't need to be difficult. Educational magazines for kids can make all the difference, ensuring that reading is always fun.

A variety of children's magazines promise to teach kids of all ages important lessons. Some are specifically designed for preschoolers just learning to read, while others strive to captivate easily-bored tweens. The goal in both situations is to foster a love of reading that will stick with kids for the long haul.

Every family subscription list should include National Geographic Kids or National Geographic Little Kids. While these are designed for differing age groups, both are chock full of compelling photography. In addition to memorizing fun facts, readers can take advantage of the many games and activities that each issue contains.

Ranger Rick is similar in many respects, encouraging kids to gain a greater appreciation for the natural world while they learn new jokes or view colorful photographs. Don't forget to check out Ranger Rick Jr. for the littlest readers. Other favorites in this magazine category include Zoobooks and Zootles.

Highlights is also a must-have — if nothing else, for the sake of tradition. Over the years, this beloved publication has been a cherished part of several generations' reading collections. Hidden Pictures has long been one of its most popular features — and these fun activities remain a hit to this day. Many stories cover science-oriented topics, ensuring that they're as interesting as possible to the school-age students who read these features.

As with National Geographic Kids, Highlights also has editions such as Highlights High Five, which are meant to teach younger kids important lessons as they prepare to eventually read educational magazines for tweens.

Parents may be surprised to learn just how educational Sports Illustrated Kids can be. Coverage of statistics helps kids build early math skills, while nutrition and exercise tips promote healthy living. The age-appropriate articles boost reading skills without making kids feel like they're completing homework.

While many of the children's magazines highlighted above appeal to kids in elementary school, there's something to be said for tween magazines such as Muse. This favorite is specifically designed with children ages 9-14 in mind. Covering a diverse array of topics, this magazine has features dedicated to science, math, and the visual arts.

Our vast collection of award-winning Kids magazine subscriptions is definitely worth checking out if you're on the hunt for additional publications that will appeal to youngsters. Some of the magazines featured on our Education page may also prove helpful. For additional help with getting kids to read, subscribe to the magazines from our Parenting collection. By reading magazines in your free time, you can set a wonderful example for your kids.
