We often caught our daughter trying to emulate us by peering closely at the newspaper and looking at the pictures. Getting them to read the papers with you each morning is an awesome way to get children interested in what’s happening around the world. The problem is that the daily newspaper is filled with information but most of it cannot be processed by a child.
So Kidsstoppress has a list of newspapers and magazines specifically created for children so they have content created for their age and interest level. While we have added subscription links to most of them you can pick them up at a newsstand near you.
