My kid gets Kayak, Wild and Owl. The reaction, when she walks in the door from school and sees the magazine waiting for her is priceless. She lights up, grabs the magazine, runs up to her room, closes the door, and does not emerge until its been read from cover to cover. If only adults reacted with such passion and commitment to magazines! Conrats to all these fabulous titles for creating such loyal readers.
