Kid Picks
I guess I am a loser mom and former teacher. For the past few weeks, we've been so busy (or sick) that there hasn't been much reading going on at our house! When I started trying to think of books to share this month, I couldn't think of any.

But, then I did think of something that my Favorite Boy enjoys reading over and over and over. Last Christmas, we purchased him a subscription to Sports Illustrated Kids Magazine. When this arrives in the mail each month, my Favorite Boy reads it from cover to cover multiple times. He has already asked for a renewal next year. (Last December, amazon.com offered a year's subscription for $5, so if this is something your kids would enjoy, keep your eye out for a good deal.) I highly recommend this magazine for sports lovers, but I think magazines also have great appeal for reluctant readers as well, especially boys as they hit those middle years when books seem to lose their appeal.

We plan to go to the library tomorrow to find some new books to read. I am also going to check out the other Kid Picks at 5 Minutes for Books today!

We've slacked off a bunch on reading this summer. I need to get back in gear as we are all missing it!

Yes, I was thinking of getting Kyle the National Geographic Kids magazine, because he likes animals, and I do know that he would read that. Good recommendation.

We went with Big Back Yard (younger version of Ranger Rick) and that's always fun when it arrives in the mailbox.

I'VE slacked off on reading this summer. Everything just feels lazier. I suppose it's good to have such seasons every now and again. And it's important to rest up when sick anyhow!

I didn't realize Sports Illustrated made a kids magazine.

I went with Patterson this week. Here is mine

My son gets Boys' Life through Scouts and he really enjoys it. Anything that keeps them reading, right?

My son had a subscription to SI for Kids, and he loved it!

What a great suggestion. Looks like the perfect magazine for the little sports enthusiast.
