Not everyone wants to give a gift that the kids open on the holidays and will instantly love but forget soon. Some of us want to give a gift that will last all the year through! Such is what you will get if you offer a gift subscription to one fo the wonderful Cricket 'bug' magazines. These are designed to be age-appropriate fun ways to actively engage children in both the love of learning and of reading. In honor of the holiday season, Cricket is giving away a one-year subscription to one lucky winner's magazine of choice! That's not all they're giving away...for every subscription ordered they donate one as well. Keep reading to learn more.
What is inside each edition varies by age, however readers all across the spectrum will find stories that involve familiar topics, and subjects that are new!
My granddaughter really likes hippos. I'm thinking of introducing her to the Hippopotamus Christmas song...and at the same time giving her the Cricket Media publication you see above. :)
As I noted, the publication is also involved in a "Double the Giving" campaign. What that means is that for any gift-giver purchasing an annual subscription this holiday season, they will gladly donate another to a child who might not otherwise be able to get one. So you'll not only be passing on the love of reading with a loved one, you'll also be sharing it with a complete stranger. That's definitely a part of what Christmas is about...or should be.
This holiday season, Cricket Media, and its award-winning family of ad-free kids magazines including BABYBUG, LADYBUG, SPIDER and CRICKET,invite gift-givers to double the reading and double the joy with their new "Double the Giving" Campaign. Throughout this November and December, any gift-giver purchasing an annual print subscription to one of four different Cricket publications will also deliver the gift of reading to a child in an underserved community through two award-winning, charitable partners: Libraries Without Borders and Parent-Child Home Program, both 2016 Library of Congress Literacy Award Winners.
Since 1973, the magazines in the Cricket family have sparked curiosity, inspired creativity and opened worlds of possibility in kids ages 3-16. Simply stack a year's worth of one of Cricket's magazines in front of a child, and they'll see months of great stories and interactive features; adults will see a lifetime foundation of literacy and learning. But many children do not have access to these experiences, and Cricket wants to help.
It's already started! Generous gift-givers seeking to give the life-long gift of reading are invited to visit DoubletheGiving.com. There, they'll have the opportunity to join a movement guaranteed to spark a lifetime love of reading through Cricket's "Double the Giving" Campaign, Through the purchase of specially-discounted subscription bundles to BABYBUG (ages 6 mos.-3), LADYBUG (ages 3-6), SPIDER (ages 6-9) or CRICKET (ages 9-14) for $29.95 (regularly priced at $33.95), gift-givers can select between two charitable organizations to receive another 9-issue annual print subscription.
