We love the Cricket family of magazines.
Not only are they ad-free, they are high quality, interesting, engaging, and all around perfect for my curious kids who love to read! There are so many of them - each with a different focus and on various reading levels.
This year, we bought 5 subscriptions and the kids were thrilled with the digital versions! They read and reread them. They discuss and debate them. They enter contests and send in comments.
And one of my kids is so proud that his note was published in one of the editions!
(Look in the picture - he marked his submission! I guess those are his 15 seconds...)
I recently found out that they have made their summer editions available for free, for anyone to try.
To sign up for your free editions, check out Cricket's summer reading page.
Here's more info about which magazines are available on various devices:
