My daughters are really into magazines these days. They get Clubhouse and were getting American Girl but, they aren't loving that one as much. I was thinking New Moon but, I just read a review that there have been recent articles on suicide and abortion which I don't feel is appropriate for my kids at this age. So, in researching, I've come across Cricket, OWL and Muse. Any thoughts on these? My girls aren't into fashion, pop culture etc... but they love reading stories, articles and jokes, doing puzzles and quizzes, recipes, craft ideas etc...
Cricket and Muse are from the same company, Carus Publishing. I think Cricket is very appropriate for this age group. You can read a sample online if you haven't already. http://www.cricketmag.com/CKT-CRICKET-Magazine-for-Kids-ages-9-14
Cricket is the fiction mag and Muse is the non-fiction science-y mag. My kids have been getting their mags since they were babies starting with BabyBug, then LadyBug, and now Spider and Cricket. They don't devour them as much as they used to , but dd2 (almost 10) just said the other day she never wants to give up Spider. Dd1 is 12 almost 13 and still enjoys Cricket and dd2 enjoys it too.
