Review: Ranger Rick Jr - Magazine for Kids


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!
Total Spave!

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?

*Disclaimer - I received a magazine for review.  No other compensation was given.  All opinions are 100% mine.

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village. 
Let us see what this film is all about:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!
When 9-year-old Jamie moves to a beautiful lakeside village, he befriends a grumpy old sea captain who tells him of the lake’s mythical creature named Nessie. The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
