Top Five Things We Love About Highlights High Five Magazine!

It was around Max's 3rd birthday that we received the subscription flyer in the mail for Highlights High Five Magazine. My three sisters and I supremely enjoyed reading Highlights Magazine as children so I knew that I definitely wanted Max to have the same opportunity but I hadn't thought that it would be of interest to him this early on during the toddler years. However, I was enticed by the invitation offer of a FREE Hidden Pictures Calendar with Stickers, so I decided to subscribe and I'm so happy I took the plunge!

Created specifically for preschoolers age 2 to 6, Highlights High Five is craftily tailored to the fun theme of early childhood discovery. From the diverse content featuring characters of various ethnic and cultural backgrounds to the popular puzzles and activities, there are plenty of reasons your family will enjoy Highlights High Five. 

Here are my top 5 favorite things about Highlights High Five:

1. Excellent Reading Content. The story lines not only feature a variety of characters, but even the animals, fruits and vegetables represent different parts of the world. One memorable story followed a family shopping at a Farmer's Market and provided a valuable lesson about diet and nutrition.     

2. Creative Pieces. The sweet and simple poems allow for reflection and heartfelt discussion with your children while the riddles are excellent exercises in problem solving. 

3. Bilingual Story Lines. Coupled with a Free Audio Edition to listen in Spanish, the Read Aloud in English and Spanish texts are perfect pieces for children to become familiar with the norm of dual language cultural environments. This feature is especially encouraging for Max as he hurdles through his vocal building of Serbian and English.  

4. Fun Recipes. Building on the many stories about fresh food markets and family activities, the kid friendly recipes are great tools to get your children interested in cooking as a part of a healthy lifestyle.

5. Free Gifts. As if the FREE Hidden Pictures Fun Booklet that comes with each subscription wasn't enough, Highlights High Five is always offering bonus giveaways like the Hidden Pictures Tote or the Hidden Pictures Summer Coloring Poster that arrived just as Mommy needed a distraction for Max in order to complete some household chores. 

Subscribing to Highlights High Five offers so much more than just a magazine for the kids. It gives you access to the Highlights community, a place for the whole family to have fun and enjoy discovery! What do your kiddos like best about Highlights Magazine?
