    As a Christmas gift, DD6 and DS8 have been promised one-year subscriptions to the magazines of their choice. Any suggestions? I'm looking for something a little challenging (i.e., not something they'll breeze through in 20 minutes).

    DS8 really likes "National Geographic for Kids" but we can get it from our library, so I'd like him to subscribe to something different. He likes anything about animals, nature, science, adventure, architecture... he likes imaginative fiction but is very into "facts & figures" too.

    DD6 likes "Chickadee" but we get that one at the library, too. She's also enjoyed "Ladybug" so that is one option. She likes fantasy stories, poetry, word games, arts & craft projects, animals (currently more in a "cute kittens, ponies and unicorns-under-magical-rainbows" phase than "let's learn facts about animals" phase).

    What magazines have your GT kids enjoyed?

    I was about the suggest "National Geographic for Kids" and "Highlights" but you got that covered. "NG for kids" is the best of science/nature type of magazines. It is hard to find one to replace it. Maybe you can try "Ranger Rick". "Highlights" is for slightly older kids than 6 years old. Your son will probably like it better. But "Ladybug" will do too. You can always upgrade it later.

    My kids had these two magazines when they were young. Now they graduated to:

    National Geographic: for science, multi-cultural
    Economist: for current events, politics, international relation
    Teen Ink: for kids writing
    CICADA: literary magazine for teenagers
    COSMOS girl: for make up, dating stuff. :-)
