Re: magazines for 2yo?

We're magazine junkies. My ds is three and he gets:

Highlights High Five (Highlights for Kids, but designed for 2-5 year olds)

My Big Backyard (Ranger Rick for the 3-5 crowd. They also have Animal Baby for the under 3's)

Click (Preschool science magazine)

and sometimes we buy Ladybug.

Let's see. Usually the first 4 pages are a "story" about an animal, these are with photographs. Then two pages of animal shape matching like match the animal cracker to the real (photo) animal. Then two pages of a song with hand signs, often 'paper cut' style drawings. Then two pages of a seek-and-find poem paired with a handdrawn picture. Then 4 pages of a little story with a little boy and girl adventuring outside (watching squirrels collect acorns, tracking prints in the snow, finding a frog at a pond). Hope that helps!

Hamish loves the babybug (it's got thicker pages) but is more into chirp now b/c it's more challenging. H is 2.5 and a book worm. We get ours at the library so we don't have to buy them.... We're in Canada so I don't know if you can get chirp in the US....
Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention. -- Sir Francis Bacon

Re: magazines for 2yo?

We also love Big Backyard at our house.

I am going to get Highlights for my 6 year old starting soon since she is reading now.

My kids also looking at any Parenting mags since they have a lot of pics of other kids and babies in them.

You can look at the cricket magazine site for a few different options. . . it's nice because you can see sample pages for each mag
