Highlights magazine—you probably recognize the brand immediately. You likely spent time reading the magazines when you were a child. You may read them now to beloved children in your life: children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, godchildren…. The magazines have the power to lull the most reluctant of readers into opening up the cover and getting lost in the world of puzzles, brain games and reading. They are magic!

Imagine, now, the world of a child living under challenging circumstances—one who does not own a single book, who sometimes goes hungry or without heat, who has never had the opportunity to see such a marvelous magazine. Consider the hurdles they face to become a productive member of our shared communities. Then envision the wonder they feel when a Highlights or Highlights High Five magazine is placed into their hands to keep as a precious possession. What usually follows is this:



The magazines are powerful! For this reason, Highlights and Highlights High Five magazines have become a crucial part of all of Kids Need to Read’s programs. Everywhere we go, everywhere we give, a Highlights or Highlights High Five magazine is put into every child’s hands. Inevitably, each youngster is drawn inside its covers to read and be inspired. What a magnificent tool in our work to help kids discover the power and joy of literacy!
