Highlights High Five's mission is to "celebrate the early years of childhood by helping parents, educators and other caregivers encourage a child's natural sense of wonder about the world - for children are the world's most important people."
They strive to accomplish this through:
- Promoting reasoning, problem solving and creative self-expression
- Fostering a love of language and a rich vocabulary
- Inspiring young children to be kind, to get along with others and to grow in self-confidence
I was so excited to introduce this part of my childhood to Girlie Girl and not surprisingly, she loved it, too. Her favorite part was the Let's Do It section where there's all kinds of hands-on activities for our family to enjoy. Even Baby Bug took an interest in the stories and simple illustrations.
All in all, Highlights High Five is just as good if not better than I remember it to be. I'm so thankful to the Parent Bloggers Network for re-introducing me to this great educational resource!
BTW, The Parent Bloggers Network will be holding a Blog Blast on March 7th where you can enter to win a subscription for your children. Don't miss out!
