Although we all have our moments of trying to "Keep Up with the Joneses" in this materialistic society, how about this idea for holiday gifts? (Remember, we have Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and...depending on your background, Three Kings Day.) While browsing at the local Barnes & Noble, I came across two children's magazines in Spanish. What a surprise! Check out:
Iguana, Revista para Niños, ¡Lee - Descubre - Disfruta!
("Read - Discover - Enjoy")
From their website they say that this magazine is geared towards children aged 7-12 that "grew up speaking Spanish" (my translation: are rather proficient). They add that topics range from history, geography, science, technology, language arts to math. Prices vary, depending if you request print, digital or both. About $18-51 dollars.
Ladybug en Español
Another children's magazine, for the younger set, from the same company. From their website they say that this magazine is geared towards 3-6 year olds.
These magazines are being discontinued in January 2015, so if you are interested, look for them at the local B&N before they sell out!
