Zoobooks Review & Giveaway...

Do your children love to get mail?  I know mine do.  When the mail comes in they rush to the door to see if they have something and I often find myself trying to pass off a clothing catalog as "just for them" (this rarely works).  When I heard about a line of magazines called Zoobooks I knew I just had to check these out so A&W could get their own magazine in the mail (hand over the  Land's End catalog thank you very much!).

In case you are not familiar with Zoobooks here is a little background from their website...

Zoobooks is the everything-you-wanted-to-know-but-didn't-know-where-to-look children's resource for animals. Each issue delves into topics such as anatomy, habitat, socialization, and reproduction-all on a single animal or animal group-in a vibrant, easy-to-understand way. The series is produced by Wildlife Education, Ltd., a company first established in 1980. Hardcover library editions of the series were first produced in 1983. Zootles magazines and books, for younger readers 2 to 6 years old, were launched in 2005. Then, the animal learning fun was extended to the littlest learners, ages 0 to 2 years old, with the introduction of Zoobies magazines and books in 2008.
Our subscribers number in the hundreds of thousands and enjoy more than just a magazine - they receive the password to our Secret Jungle website with just-for-kids animal games, puzzles and articles PLUS twice monthly e-Safaris that trek through the best animal sites on the web. Welcome to the world of Zoobooks, Zootles and Zoobies!

The kids were sent a copy of each Zoobooks, Zootles and Zoobies to take a look at and let's just say these are very well loved!  They were as excited about getting mail as I knew they would be plus the magazines are filled with things kids love...animals!  The pictures are amazing and the content for each perfectly age appropriate.

In Zoobies (for the littlest ones) the magazine is smaller and square and heavy duty (no easy to tear pages here).  Each page is filled with bright and close up pictures of the featured animal and is more of a story book than a magazine.  The book also  features activities for you to do with your child.

In Zootles, for ages 2-6, there are more amazing pictures as in Zoobies but the content is just perfect for  pre-schoolers and early readers.  There are stories, games, hidden pictures and so much more.  A&W LOVED their Zootles magazine which was all about Ants (perfect for my little bug lovers!).

Zoobooks is for ages 6-12 and again, I can't say enough about the photography....simply beautiful and vibrant.  The magazine we received featured the hummingbird and while the content was a little old for A&W they were mesmerized by the photos.  Zoobooks contains puzzles and numbers games, facts about the animal featured going into detail on things such as skeleton structure etc...

Something I really love about all the Zoobooks?  No advertising.  I love this.  There is no other "stuff" cluttering up the magazine so your child can enjoy the content without other distraction.  Bravo!

You can order a subscription to any or all of these wonderful magazines by visiting the Zoobooks Website.
