Helping young children enrich their thoughts with stories on science, fiction, laughter, and anecdotes from children’s daily lives.
The world was a different place in 1946, when Highlights magazine was first published. As times changed, so did kids, and so did we. Don’t worry, though – we’re still the same trusted children’s magazine in the most important ways. The experts at Highlights still know how to keep kids motivated with fun while they are learning and practicing the essential skills they will need in school.
The Highlights motto is Fun with a Purpose! In every issue, kids explore new topics, investigate fascinating subjects and find out about the world. A Highlights magazine subscription for kids will bring them 12 months filled with stories, games, puzzles, riddles, science experiments, craft projects and activities that are as entertaining as they are educational.
Plus, Highlights never includes third-party advertising, so you can rely on it to be a commercial-free zone where your young reader can play, learn and just be a kid.
One of the founding principles of Highlights is that we believe in helping kids become their best selves: Curious, Creative, Caring and Confident. That’s why we keep up with kids’ interests today while upholding time-honored values like respect, manners, fair play, kindness, honesty, and more.
Goofus and Gallant are still prompting kids to think about right and wrong behaviors, and pages like ‘About You’, ‘Create’, ‘Laughs from You’ and ‘Dear Highlights’ motivate kids to share their art, jokes and thoughts for possible publication in the magazine. We love to see what Highlights kids can do!
