Highlights for Children (July 2019)

Published by Flip eBook Library, 2020-03-18 07:08:59

Description: Highlights for Children Magazine

Ages 6-12


You Loved it Then, Today’s Kids Love it Now!

Highlights for Children, often referred to simply as Highlights, is an American children's magazine. It began publication in June 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. Since its inception Highlights has carried the slogan "Fun with a Purpose".

Skill-Building Fun

The Highlights motto is Fun with a Purpose. In every 40-page 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.

Highlights Kids Are Cool!

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 the interests of kids 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 “Your Own Pages” motivates kids to be creative and share their work for possible publication. We love to see what Highlights kids can do!


For more than 70 years, Highlights children’s magazine has been bringing Fun with a Purpose to kids everywhere.

Send us your photos at Your High Five ! With so many milestones for young children to reach, it can be hard for parents to remember what children should know and when. A survey by the nonprofit ZERO TO THREE found that 43 percent of parents think a child should master sharing by age two, when the skill actually develops between ages three and four. In “Sharing at Camp” (pages 6–9), Indi and fellow camper Isabel struggle with this practice. After you read this story, you might talk with your child about how Indi and Isabel handle the situation and what self-management skills they use. What is your family’s favorite sharing strategy?

20 July 2019 Reading The Missing Cookies By Helen Dent • Art by Rocco Baviera One day, Tiger and Panda made curly cookies. They set the cookies outside to cool and went into the forest to play hide-and-seek.

21 July 2019 “Surely the cookies are cool enough by now,” said Tiger as he found Panda for the third time. “Let’s go back to your house.” But when they reached Panda’s house, the cookies were gone. “Tiger,” said Panda, “did you eat the cookies while I was hiding?” “Me?” said Tiger. “I didn’t eat a crumb. You gobbled them up, didn’t you?” The friends glared at each other.

22 July 2019 Just then, Sloth Bear ambled out from the nearby trees. “Thanks for the cookies,” he said. “What cookies?” asked Tiger. “The ones you left here for the animals of the forest,” said Sloth Bear. “Very nice of you. Very tasty too.”

23 July 2019 Panda and Tiger began to laugh. “I’m sorry I thought you ate all the cookies,” said Tiger. “I’m sorry I thought YOU ate all of them,” said Panda. “Let’s make some more,” they said together. And that’s just what they did.
