Do you have an elementary or even preschool child in the house?
If so...HOLLA YO!
I am so street, am I not?
Anyway, recently I was given an opportunity to review Ranger Rick Jr. magazine.
I am so glad I got this opportunity.
Cheeks is a developing reader and this magazine kept his interested and was easy for him to sound out the words as we read it together.
Not to mention, he learned so much about Lions in this particular issue.
Plus other Wacky Facts, like giraffes only sleep 6-10 minutes at a time. Sort of like me, when Cheeks was little.
What's even cooler...if you have an iPad you can get the new Ranger Rick Appventures.
“Ranger Rick Jr. Appventures” is an innovative digital storybook series that spotlights a different animal in each app – from lions and pandas to penguins and other favorites – as kids explore an interactive photo story, play games, and create pictures, music, and their own tales. The premier Appventure features Ricky Raccoon and his friend Lars the Lion as they take children to the African grasslands to discover how lions live. The app was developed in partnership with Moonbot Studios, winners of the 2012 Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film and makers of the award-winning app, “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.”
Right now the app is available for only $4.99!
Even better Ranger Rick Jr is available as a yearly subscription for only $19.95 with digital versions available for the Nook (my personal fave) & the Kindle. Cheeks loves my Nook so I have already gotten the digital download.
Cheeks is still reading the magazine as well. I let him read for a bit in a bed before lights out & we can hear him downstairs reading out loud & naming the animals almost every single night.
In my opinion...get the magazine. Not only is it fun but it's educational.
Tell me, have you already gotten it or did you read any magazines by the National Wildlife Foundation as a kid?
