Editorial Review

People is the most wildly, consistently successful magazine in history (not to mention the most stolen from lunchrooms) and it's avidly read by half the population of America each year. Why? The people at People know what you want to read: the absolute latest, impossible-to-get dish on celebrity scandals (a $3-million-a-year fact-checking department keeps it real); definitive tribute issues; snappy wrap-ups on the whereabouts of yesterday's stars and the current Most Beautiful People; riveting stories of real folks caught up in the day's biggest news, health, and crime stories; and quick picks and pans on what's up in entertainment. And after years of black-and-white drabness, the mag has fully mastered the art of flashy, full-color photography. --Bob Brandeis ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars True Crapper Reading
There are some magazines that are true crapper reading - light, mildly interesting or entertaining articles that engages you slightly, but don't require you to be engaged with, in order to read while doing some damage sitting on the can.Then there are pretenders - stuff you simply can't drop off or pick up at any point.YOU know what I'm talking about...

People is one of those in, what I like to call, the true crapper camp.The kind of read you need in the bathroom when you're taking a dump.The articles are so pointless and inane, it doesn't distract you from your real and first responsiblity.Taking a dump.

That's why I call People magazine, true crapper reading.

5-0 out of 5 stars Inspirational
This magazine has had a huge impact on my life. A lot of people get this magazine because they are looking for lite entertainment or escapism, but if you are looking for inspiration, the pages of People Magazine are loaded with it.

For example, a while back I read a story about Julia Cameron in People which inspired me to investigate what she was all about. That led to my buying "The Artist's Way," then I did the 12 week program, and since then have become a professional house painter making twice the salary that I used to make! All because I read about Julia in PEOPLE!

Another great example is Robert Kyosaki -- I read a story about him which talked about his Rich Dad book, which I immediately went out and DEVOURED in one day. Then I got his tapes, I drove around listening to those tapes in my car for months. Just a few months later, I bought my first house! My own personal American Dream story, just because I was reading People Magazine.

Then I read a story about a new system for increasing passion for couples through sexual mastery. I got a copy of the "New Sex Now" dvd right here on amazon, and after watching it one time, suddenly my lovelife went from average to AMAZING! My girlfriend and I experienced intimacy that we had never known before, and passion that was profound. Now, we're married and living a life of unexpected closeness and fulfillment. I connected with the love of my life because of an article I read in People Magazine.

Now I'm not saying that there's not a lot of fun fluff and mental popcorn for people who want that from a magazine, but if you are looking to improve yourself and get more out of life, People Magazine has plenty of grist for the mill, and on every page provides opportunities for everyone to think and dream bigger. Now that is the mark of a truly awesome magazine!

2-0 out of 5 stars Not enough people
To my mind, a magazine called "People" should have more people in it. Since I began my subscription in 1978, I've uncovered a detectable decline in the number of people appearing in the so called "People" magazine. For the most part, the decline has been pretty steady. 1986, however, was a notable year, as the number of pictures of people in People declined by 64%. This same year saw an increase in dog photos by roughly 3%. It was at this point that I wrote to the editors suggesting a name change for the magazine, or else keep the ratio of dogs to people reasonable. Or else feel my wrath. And by wrath I mean cancelled subscription. Much to my chagrin, they called my bluff and cancelled my subscription for me, so it's fortunate that I had another subscription coming to my house under a pseudonym. What is that pseudonym, you ask? Johnny Depp. And that pseudonym is what has gotten me into the annual People Magazine Christmas party every year since. And each year, as I stand on my hind legs next to the punchbowl, talking with a gorgeous starlet, I laugh and laugh, because while the editors of the magazine are all cornered by drunken John Lovitz, I am enjoying every dog and man's dream, and it feels as though the night will never end. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Teeny Peeps
This is a great magazine, vice versa to all those other customer reviews. It's just a fun-filled, style/gossip magazine. Along with styles and what's 'in' for the season and what's 'out'. If you are the type of person who hates gossip, fashion-talk, boy-talk and such, I don't suggest it. But if you do, then heck with it! Grab one and start reading. They have full-color pictures or stars--Star Tracks, SCENE--where celebrities talk, what's happening, most embarrasing moments, quizzes, love-talk, sneek-peeks, what's new and what's old, new movies, awsome books and movies to watch, and advice for girls just like us.

1-0 out of 5 stars terrible
i subscribed to this magazine thinking it was like its "parent" People , which i love to read.
however, this is just awful. its all about sex, guys, and expensive clothing. i flip through in 5-10 min. and im done. nothing real here at all. they publish bits about "I stole my best friends guy!". its stupid to read and glorifies being mean to others. STUPID.
unless your a preppy, shallow, rich girl, dont even think about this magazine. worst $12 i ever spent.

1-0 out of 5 stars Will charge your credit card without permission...
Time Magazine will keep charging you for renewals, even if you do not want them.Avoid like the plague.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very good photojournalism, but otherwise shoddy.
The best way to describe Time Magazine is that it is a Cliff's notes for the past weeks events. Shallow and poorly done, the articles are uninformative but have pretty pictures and graphs.

The problem is that we already have news Cliff's notes in the form of cable news. Unlike cable, Time does not have video or on demand coverage. It is simply obsolete.

If you are buying a weekly magazine, do yourself a favor and read something that will really inform you. I suggest The Economist.

5-0 out of 5 stars Time.....Like Clockwork
My "Time" magazine arrives like clockwork weekly in my mailbox. I am always happy to see it there among the bills and the junk mail. I recently dropped cable TV, and "Time" fills in all the gaps for me, and gives in depth reports on newsworthy events that are just glossed over on the local stations.

From the big world events, including special reports like the recent Tsunami tragedy, to what's new in the science and industry world, the economy, the latest inventions and gadgets, to sports and people in the news, and TV, movie and music happenings, there is something for everbody. It's a periodical that lets me catch up on the newest terminology in the cyber world to the newest star in the hip-hop world. It amazes my kids that I would even know this.

The articles seem well researched, are well written, interesting and very informative. Find out if the video game your child is playing is suitable for their age group, who we lost this week, great quotes and much more. There are excellent photos and even the letters to the editor seem more insightful and informative then anywhere else. From Politics to Fitness, from Food to Technology..it's all here.

The price is right for a subscription. You get your money's worth, and will have the world at your fingertips.

Keep up the pace with "Time"....Laurie ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I liked it!
I am new to vegetarianism and at a loss for what to eat.I picked up this magazine and enjoyed it cover to cover.Nice recipes, lots of health info.I don't feel so lost.I don't want a militant magazine.I don't want to read shocking, alarming things.I already get the idea, which is why I picked up this magazine to begin with.I want to know how to get enough protein, nice dishes that I can get my carnivorous husband to eat.Hopefully, I'll be able to cajole him into going vegatarian, too, by pleasant example and health benefits.I liked it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not worth the paper it's on
I subscribed to this magazine, in its new format, for a year and found maybe one original, inspiring recipe.The rest of the recipes could be found in even the smallest collection of vegetarian cookbooks.If you have a few veggie cookbooks, don't bother with this subscription.The articles aren't interesting or well-written either.

2-0 out of 5 stars not very useful unless you want recipes
Personally, after a year's subscription I got virtually no use or entertainment out of this magazine at all. It might depend on what you're looking for though. First of all, there's no true journalism in this magazine at all. For example, I would've liked to see some in-depth articles about what various advertizing terms actually tell you about animal treatment, what the full picture was on various nutritional contraversies regarding veg*anism, etc. They never have that sort of thing at all though.

The other thing is that, like the majority of veg*ans, I have a lot of problems with underweightedness and (occasionally) inadequate nutrition. VT, however, caters almost exclusively to those who are overweight and/or have eating disorders. Once, they even had an article about being an Atkin's vegan (I don't know how they can sleep at night advocating a diet that suicidal). I never saw a single VT article about how to gain weight, and hardly saw any passing mention of omega 3's, B12, or other nutrients that are severely lacking in an unsuplimented vegan diet. Overall, their conception of health is limited to weight loss, bizarre dietary obsessions, and yoga classes.

However, some people might find the magazine useful. The vast majority of the magazine is recipes, which to be honest I never really took advantage of. I basically never cook according to recipes, but if you do you might like the magazine a lot (especially if you're just a regular vegetarian). Also, if you need to lose weight, like I said, they have articles about it in every issue. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars No Junk in this Magazine
I recommend this magazine to really learn techniques to improve your running level.There is not alot of filler in this small magazine.I find that this is the magazine I don't circulate with friends because I like to keep the articles for future reference.I learn something new each time.

3-0 out of 5 stars I agree with JRK from vermont - Runner's World is better
I first saw Running Times at my podiatrist's office and a few articles are really good but the lay out and the way it is put together is bit unorganized so for me it is not very clear on the subjects that I am reading. Like JRK said I get more out of Runner's World than i did with Running TImes.Since there are not many running magazine out there I think having Running Times is a good additional info if you have the extra dough.

4-0 out of 5 stars Running Times is the runner's best resource
I am writing because I believe the most recent review of Running Times paints an inaccurate picture of the magazine.From my perspective, Running Times is a much better resource than Runner's World for serious runners, serious athletes, AND the rest of us who are serious ABOUT our running.

My experiences with Runner's World make me think about the thousands of people who "run" road races all across the United States.I put run in quotes because there are plenty of people who run races to finish the race, very noble goal.Runner's World provides quick suggestions for making longer races interesting (i.e. take a camera on a secenic race course and take some pictures).Great idea to get people out for races, but not a good idea for someone who wants to improve their race time.Gallowalking will get you to the finishline, but if you have been training appropriately, it will not drop your race times.

My experiences with Running Times tend to make me think of those people who want to drop a minute from their 5k PR.Whether you are running 21 minute 5k's or running 16 minute 5k's, Running Times will provide runners who are interested in improving their running with the information they need to improve.Pete Pfitzinger in particular brings an incredible wealth of scientific and real-world training and racing knowledge to each issue of the magazine.

I highly recommend Running Times to anyone who is serious ABOUT their running. ... Read more

US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France

Editorial Review

Sold each week both separately and as part of the Sunday New York Times, the Book Review divides the published world into two parts for easy consumption: nonfiction, and fiction and poetry. There is no attempt to be comprehensive. Although scholarly books are regularly reviewed, the sort of thing chosen is likely to be no more arcane than a cultural history of Halloween or a new biography of Jesse James, along with, say, the memoirs of David Rockefeller. The reader of the Book Review can also expect to find the latest novel by Joyce Carol Oates or Pat Conroy as well as the efforts of one or two first novelists and the new book of poems by Billy Collins. What distinguishes the reviews from those of your hometown Sunday newspaper are principally three things: there are more of them (each issue runs some 20 pages), they are likely to be more searching and more critical (often the reviewers are at least as well-known as the authors reviewed), and each review has behind it the authority of the New York Times itself, whose cultural as well as political clout is simply unmatched in American life. For a book to sell, it doesn’t necessarily have to be considered in the Book Review. For a book to be taken seriously,it probably does--and readers who take themselves seriously invariably read the Book Review. --Terry Caesar ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best on the market for the War Between the States
Civil War Times gives its readers exactly what they want - accurate historical reporting on America's bloodiest conflict. The articles give exciting, in-depth examinations of the battles to soldier profiles, both famous and obscure. The modern effects of the war don't escape notice, with valuable information on heritage preservation efforts and reenactments. Also recommend America's Civil War, but this one is the best

2-0 out of 5 stars Never received the magazine
I ordered this magazine as a gift to my brother.Six months later he advised me that he never received a single copy even though he did get the gift subscription notification.After calling the publisher's subscription dept. I was told the magazine was shipped but returned as undeliverable.It turns out the street number was incorrect.I only wish they had notified me three months earlier, instead of waiting for me to call them.They also promised to call me in 24 hours to follow up, that never happened.This is a very good magazine, but my beef is with the subscription handlers.If something went wrong with the delivery I would expect them to initiate contact, especially in the case of a gift subscription.I ended up cancelling the subscription and just buying it off the shelf at a major bookstore and giving it to my brother, and he loves it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Where does one go?
As a fan/reenactor and hobbyist of the Civil War, where does one go for further insight or keep up on current events?I would say to start reading this magazine.It covers many subjects and offers new insight while bringing forth reader response.The articles are very intriguing and offer a lot of information.This magazine is indeed probably the best out there on the subject. ...

Editorial Review

Founder and publisher Jann S. Wenner's brainchild remains the standard by which rock & roll magazines are measured, though even its most fervent boosters would concede there've been some growing pains for RS as it's strived to remain relevant through the decades. The erstwhile baby-boomer bible mixes fleshy covers of today's alluring celebs with coverage of graying rockers from the magazine's heyday. In addition to celebrity interviews, stalwart features such as CD reviews and Random Notes (the mag's long-running gossip section) provide familiar reading for older readers, as does the publication's superior political and cultural coverage. But the bulk of Rolling Stone's features are aimed at the younger pop-culture set. --Steven Stolder ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Corporate magazines still suck
Rolling Stone hasn't been a credible music journal for at least 15 years, and that's being extremely kind.Rather they are a marketing outlet for the corporate sponsors of whatever music is being pushed at the moment.That's of course when they deign to write about music at all.There are far too many politically oriented articles from an upper middle class armchair liberal point of view to catagorize Rolling Stone as strictly a music magazine.And let's not mention the extremely annoying fashion layouts.RS is more of a lifestyle journal that panders to white and mostly liberal middle class tastes and culture.I don't care about the political bent of the magazine so much as I care about the pop garbage that Rolling Stone writes about.They almost without exception shill for the flavor of the month rather than write any responsible criticism.Occasionally the articles are informative, but for the most part Rolling Stone is an irrelevant device to generate advertising dollars.

1-0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for
Isn't it amazing that the cost of a Rolling Stone subscription is barely enough to cover the cost of postage?The magazine is mostly advertisements, and the rest of it isn't worth reading.I grew up on Rolling Stone, but have realized that if I want a decent music review about music I care about, I'll go to pitchforkmedia.com.Even SPIN is better than this crap.

1-0 out of 5 stars RS: "Music Experts" who don't know CRAP about music.
Anyone who would consider putting a list of the 100 Greatest Artists ever without Pink Floyd, Queen, or Metallica has no knowledge of music whatsoever.

Also who the hell would put Kurt Cobain and Jack White on a list of the 100 greatest guitarists ever above Eddie Van Halen and Randy Rhoads? Also not to mention that they didn't even include Slash or Malmsteem on the list.

This magazine makes me sick to the stomach. Basically all they do is praise artists who have good lyrics but crappy music, like Bob Dylan. They also need to get over their constant worship of U2, because even when they put out those 2 awful albums 'Zooropa' and 'Pop', they did nothing but praise them for their over-produced experimental crap.

And what can we say about their devotion towards 'The White Stripes' and 'The Strokes' and hail them as the BEST NEW THING, while we've been waiting for years for these people to make albums worth their praise. Yet, Rolling Stone rather ignores great new artists like Muse, Franz Ferdinand, and Keane.

I know you guys are probably potheads, but perhaps you should consider putting the hash pipe to the side and think about what you write because it's hurting the REAL ARTISTS. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars the WORST experience ever with ordering
I ordered two copies of this subscrition to find that I am recieving one and the other is lost in space, even though I have paid for it. the newpaper company amazon order through can't find it and Amazon refuses to deal with it, just saying they have passed the order on. The magazine themselves have never heard of me either; even though I ALREADY PAID for it.
NEVER EVER us this system for ordering magazines it is just not worth it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Get your kids to read!
Iordered this as a birthday gift for my 8yr old nephew who loves to both play and watch sports.Now he grabs the issue as soon as it arrives and runs to his room to read it and get his new trading cards.Each issue also comes with a small poster in the middle that can be hung in their room or locker.It appears to have the same or similar articles as the "adult" version but no swimsuit issue and otherwise edited for the younger set.He has already asked me to renew the subscription for his next birthday.This is a great way to get your kids reading which will also help improve their writing as well as other skills needed in school (and life).
If your child loves sports I highly recommend investing in a subscription - well worth the $20!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great magazine for kids
I've been reading this with my six year old son for several months now.It's a great way to get in some pleasurable reading, and start forming a reading habit, with a child who likes sports.

There are a number of standard sections, and nice short articles in kid-friendly language.Each month they have an insert with some playing cards which he looks forward to.And they'll interview a player about a specific skill -- how to steal a base, how to play defense in basketball, etc.

I recommend it both for the fun/sports content, and also for the educational benefit of starting the reading habit. ... Read more

This is a great magazine for preschool/early elementary kids.We have renewed it twice and enjoy watching our son learn more with each issue.The editors do a great job of publishing intersting and unique facts about many different kids of animals.

1-0 out of 5 stars RIP OFF!!!!
I ordered a subscription for my step-son and a gift for a niece at the same time.They took my money and both of the ONE-YEAR subscriptions I paid for only resulted in ONE ISSUE to each child.I couldn't get any more information on the magazine, as we never received any more informaiton until I got an e-mail from Amazon asking me to renew.

I noticed another recent post with the same problem.The magazine was really great, and my step-son and niece both waited and waited for their next issue which never showed.

How disappointing.I wouldn't take the chance if I were you.

5-0 out of 5 stars We Love It and The Company Solved Our Subscription Problem
My son has loved this magazine and is in his third year as a subscriber.He loves getting an interesting magazine in the mail each month.I love that it has good emergent reader level content this is focused so that different bits of content throughout the magazine reinforce the same concepts.My son especially loves the mini-books that come in each magazine and we generally have to make those as soon as they come.

As an educator, I love that the content is at the right level and that it is actually educational in contrast to some magazines.This magazine is reasonably priced and still has NO advertising.I am so thankful that the publishers have made that decision and I will keep subscribing to this until it is time to move up to Ranger Rick.

I did have to sort out a problem with the publisher because we had recieved two gift subscriptions.I called and they were able to make the two subscriptions run back to back, so instead of two magazines each month, we have two years of subscription and they assure me that whenever it is time to move to Ranger Rick, we can apply any unused Big Backyard to the Ranger Rick subscription.They were very polite to me and solved my problem efficiently. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Helped Foster My Love and Respect for Animals
(...)

Living in the country as I did, I saw plenty wild animals in my backyard (squirrels, raccoons, possums..), but armed with Ranger Rick, I was able to appreciate and see them up close with out being bit, scratched, mauled, or hauled off to the emergency room for rabies shots!

Besides the wonderful animal features, there were projects, games, and activities to keep me and my brother busy.The concepts put forth in each issue emphasized recycling, kindness to animals, and conservation -- values and beliefs I carry with me almost 30 years after the fact.

So whether you live on a farm, the suburbs, or the city, Ranger Rick would be a wonderful gift for your child.It will help foster a life long love and respect for animals, as well as reinforce key values (conservation, recycling, etc.).A few things have changed over the past 30 years, but Ranger Rick is still consistantly a good magazine.

2-0 out of 5 stars Ranger Rots!

The previous reviews have said it all...but it can't hurt to say it again...this magazine is a waste...it is filled with jokes, ads and animals frequently dressed up in silly outfits.SO SO SO disappointing because I am a huge National Geographic fan.For those who want a good quality magazine for their children, subscribe to ASK Magazine.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty cool
If you want a magazine that has a lot of interesting articles this is the magazine for you. It has some things that come in all the issues like (lame) jokes and a bunch of facts. It also has some news stories and most issues try to get you to watch something exciting on the National Geographic Channel. Mostly this is a decent kids magazine with nothing bad or inappropriat but actually manages to still be quite fun to read ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars *Um,I'm 12.It's okay but....*
...It can be weak. About 1\4 of the magazine is ads, and the other is crude humor. I'm mean Ilike jokes and all, but there is way too much! Since I'm getting older, I'm reading GL,Teen,Discovery Girls, and AG. But I like this mag. It has it's uppoints: Celeb Chats, weird facts, a calendar for what's happening that month. It also tells when new nick shows are, which is cool. It's more for 8-11 range but I like it. But I'm probably gonna stop getting it soon.I seriously hoped I helped, and this mag is great for kids. Thanks, and bye!

4-0 out of 5 stars GOOD!
I LIKE TEEN PEOPLE,LOVE ANIME INSIDER,SUBSCRIBED TO SHONEN JUMP,AND HOPE TO SUBSCRIBE TO THIS. I DON'T OWN ANY ISSUES,BUT I GOT ISSUES OUT OF MY SCHOOL LIBARY AND IT WAS PRETTY GOOD. I LIKE IT.

2-0 out of 5 stars Too Much Rude Humor
I recently stopped my subscription. This magazine has a lot of rude humor and is too inmature on my level. Kids 10 and under would enjoy it the most. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Ride it Read it!
I love this horse magazine so much!I love the quizzes, great posters and great acticles about real people and their horse/pony.I take riding lessons but don't own a horse but still enjoy this magazine! This is a great magazine for kids ages 7-13 i think. Some people say that people over the age of 10 are too old for this magazine, but I toatally disagree!I am 11 years old and I love this magazine. This magazine I think is for any good horse lover!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great magazine!
I really enjoy reading Young Rider, but it only comes every other month. I decided to suscribe to other magazines such as Horse Illustrated and Practical horseman so I don't have to wait two months before another horse magazine comes. i also LOVE the posters!

5-0 out of 5 stars I love Young Rider
I am 11 and I read young rider. I find all the info helpful even though I do not own a horse! I definately reccomend this magazine. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Magazine
Last fall, I picked up an issue of "Discovery Girls" at Kroger.After skimming a few pages, I decided that it was worth a try, and asked my mom if she would buy it for me.I read through the entire magazine in one night, and enjoyed it very much!I bought a couple more issues after that until I finally decided that I just needed to get a subscription.I ordered at an off-time, so I ended up having to wait a couple months until I got my first issue.But boy, was it worth it!You can just imagine my excitement when I came home from playing outside and found an issue of "Discovery Girls" waiting for me!

Contained in each "Discovery Girls" magazine are:

- Information about this issue's real life "Discovery Girls".If you find that the "Discovery Girls" company is coming to your state soon, and you are between the age of eight and twelve, you could be one, too!"Discovery Girls" get to have fun and hang out together, model for pictures that will be featured in the magazine, possibly try out a new product, and spend a day at someplace fun, ranging from a salon to "Build-A-Bear Workshop".Two girls are chosen to be cover models.

- Articles giving helpful advice about things such as friendship, jealousy, getting along with siblings, and more.Unlike most magazines, "Discovery Girls" actually gives GOOD advice that will really help you with your problems.And besides the longer articles, there is also a section called "Ask Ali", where you can send in a letter to "Ali", and possibly receive an answer in a later issue.

- Plenty of room for you to speak, whether it be sharing advice with fellow readers, telling an embarassing moment, voicing your opinion about a certain topic, telling a fictional story, sharing something shocking that really happened to you, or asking questions and giving ideas to the editors.

- Lots of cool quizzes!Some are just for fun, but others can teach you a little bit about yourself.For example, featured in the most recent issue are the quizzes: "Are You a Drama Queen?", "Case Closed!" (Are you too quick to judge people?), "Which Star Could Be Your BFF?", and "What's Your Trollz Style?" ("Trollz" is a product).They are entertaining, nicely-illustrated quizzes that you will be giving to your friends.

- Sports advice.A new sport is featured each issue.Some past ones have been basketball, softball, track, and I think volleyball.I personally never read the sports advice, since dance is the only sport that I am involved in at the moment.But if "dance" is ever mentioned, I'll read every little word and detail!

- Celebrity pages.Want to know more about a celebrity?Maybe find out just how much you already know about them?Celebrity pages (ranging from quizzes involving them to interviews) are featured frequently in "Discovery Girls".

- Craft ideas, one or two comics, occasionally something along the lines of a word search, and more, meaning more fun!The crafts are unique, too!They're not all just "scissors and paper" crafts.One in particular was REALLY cute!It was making cute snack-size treats for your mom on Mother's Day.

- Opportunities to learn more about other countries and cultures.In each issue, one girl from each country is interviewed, tells a little about her life, what she likes to eat, what music she listens to, and some other things, and then there are facts such as "things that make that country unique", and "the traditional way to dress in that country".This month's country was India!

- Chances to win cool stuff, and advertisements for new books, movies, toys, clothes, and much more.There are also website names featured in certain areas, so that girls who love to surf the web and do online shopping will never get bored.

If that doesn't convince you that "Discovery Girls" is a great magazine, then it isn't the magazine for you.But I love it, and I can't wait to get my next issue!

Notes to parents:

A new issue of "Discovery Girls" comes every two months.

Some slightly older-girl content is featured in certain issues (such as "Which Bra is Right for You?").So be aware that bras and boys ARE talked about occasionally.But also be aware that there is no profanity, crude language, or anything else of the sort.

1-0 out of 5 stars PERFECT For 8-11 year olds
I'm 13 and i think that this magazine is the "grown-up" version of American Girl but is still too babyish and boring for preteens, so 12-15 year olds try Girl's Life,it's sooooo much bettter!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars SAVE OUR TWEENS
I would like to applaud you on your magazine's target audience.There were no magazines for girls my age when I was a pre-teen.I'm glad that you addressed the ongoing problem of mean girls and girls growing up too fast.I recently submitted an article on both of those subjects to my writing work shop, and it was well received.Please let me know if it would be all right to mail you a sample of my writing. Because I remember what it was like to be a child, I think that I can share some valuable ideas with young readers.Angela Tanzi ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars BEST AROUND
I GOT THIS MAGAZINE FOR A LITTLE KID WHO I KNOW.
THE KID LOVES THE MAGAZINE TO DEATH
THE BEST PART OF THIS MAGAZINE IS THERE ARE
NO ADS. SO THE KIDS STAY FOCUS ON THE ARTICLE OF THE MAGAZINE
THERE ARE SO MANY TOPICS THAT THEY HAVE.
I'M GLAD I FOUND THE BACK ISSUES.
GREAT LEARNING TOOL FOR KIDS
GREAT FOR PROJECTS AND HOMEWORK
EVENIF I DID NOT HAVE A HOOK UP WITH THE ISSUES
I WOULD STILL BUY THIS MAGAZINE FOR KIDS
THE MAGAZINE IS ABOUT 20 PAGES LONG

5-0 out of 5 stars one of the best educational mag's I've found
I bought this for my children and was surprised to find my husband and myself reading it as well. Not only did it come in handy for homework, but the old issues have been saved and used in projects,papers, homework and even by the teachers! I have five children, so they have had alot of exposure to diffirent age levels and have always proven usful. Some of the teachers were excited because this subscription was one that they wished that they could get every year as part of their class materials.
As an added point, while on vacation, we have spotted the back issues on sale in gift shops for as much as four ninety nine $4.99. These were issues that contained stories about the particular historic event, etc that they thought informative enough to sale.
You can't go wrong with this one!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
I have been getting this magazine for my kids for about 3 years now.I love it as much, or more, than they do.Not only is it interesting and fun, but it is educational as well.I reccommend it to everyone with children or grandchildren! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Please help!
We had this for my granddaughter when she was little and we sent in one of her pictures, here it is a year and a half later and they are going to use it!If any of you get this it will be in the March April issue.Would you consider sending me that page after your child is through with that issue?I can't find a place where I can order just a couple copies of that issue.If you find an address to send for back issues would you please email me.cindyleet@gci.net

4-0 out of 5 stars Kid's don't fake it. You know if they like it.
My four year old grand daughter likes to spend time with books and magazines.She choses this one frequently from the pile available to her.
Her favorite [...] mothergoosecaboose and this magazine gives it a run for the money.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good short stories and activities
This magazine is expensive, but each issue contains several stories, activities like mazes, finding hidden items, and basic colors and counting. My son does not watch TV (his choice), but he likes the characters in this magazine, who are all friendly and likable to him.

I also recommend subscribing to the mediocre Parenting magazine, only because it includes an issue of Sesame Street magazine with every subscription-issue. Sesame Street magazine is better than Preschool Playroom because it has a much broader selection of information (includes animals, geography, and multi-cultural lessons) presented in a style that preschoolers enjoy. Just leave the Parenting magazine in the waiting room at the pediatrician's office. ... Read more
