My son has had a two year subscription to Highlights High Five magazine and has loved getting it. We read the stories,and he does all the puzzles, but now that he is almost 6 1/2 he is growing out of it and we received the last issue this month so perfect timing for me. The only thing was the price $35.00 is a lot of money to put out though I do keep them and will have him use them and then when he is done with them, I have a friends son who can use then next.
Highlights High Five magazine contains a variety of stories & activities my 3 1/2 yr old granddaughter loves. Contains stories to read with an adult, stories to encourage increased interaction with the child, a removable board game of some sort, regular each-issue activities....... Today the story that begins to teach some basic Spanish terms in each issue is a good move. All in all - excellent choices for the age level advertised.
I got Highlights High Five for my granddaughter who is 7. She spends every Friday night with her Pappy and me. We sit together and read this magazine cover to cover. Every Friday when she walks in the door she asks if she got her new magazine in the mail yet. We make the recipes that we see (like lemonade) and play the games we see (like memory.) It's just wonderful to turn the TV off and spend true quality time together doing something we love.
