The Best Magazines for Kids - Secular Homeschooling & Gameschooling @

I love magazines, and for good reason too! Magazines are an awesome way to expose kids to literature, especially kids who are reluctant readers or who maybe need a little more time to process what they read. They also make great gifts, kids love getting mail. Providing high-quality magazines for your kids is a great way to expose them to new ideas and thoughts, but the key is quality. Not all magazines are created equal, so to help you get started here is my list of the Best Magazines For Kids!
