When the opportunity came for me to review Ranger Rick Jr. magazine, I didn't hesitate. National Wildlife offered both the magazine and the new iPad app Ranger Rick Appventures - Lions which works together to provide early readers with a way to learn more about animals. I am partnering with Tricia at The Curriculum Choice on this review-click over to see how her family enjoyed the iPad app!
A Lion's Tale online. The easy to read text is perfect for younger animal lovers to read with a little help from mom and dad. I found my teens paging through this colorful magazine and I am going to be keeping it on the shelf as a reference for drawing projects. I know if I had little ones they would use these magazines as sources of images to cut out and put into journals and reports.
