Magazines for Kids and Teens. A Resource for Parents, Teachers, Librarians, and Kids!
Stoll, Donald R., Ed.
Noting that many kids' and teens' magazines are not for sale at newsstands or bookstores, this book presents individual listings in alphabetical order for more than 200 magazines for children and teens from ages 2 to 18. Each entry contains: an annotation describing a journal's coverage; ordering information; cost; intended audience (age, sex); subject (e.g., general interest, social studies, etc.); circulation size; manner of distribution (subscription, churches, libraries); editor; publisher; instructions on obtaining a sample; and information concerning publication of readers' work (e.g., letters to editors, stories, jokes, etc.). The preface describes changes from the previous publication, "Magazines for Children," changes in the children's magazine industry, and tips for selecting magazines for young children. An article by Bernice E. Cullinan, "In Tune with the Times," reports on how the rapidity of change in contemporary life has been changed, especially for young people. The book also presents indexes to age/grade levels, subjects, and a list of magazines that publish young readers' work. (RS)
