NWF’s Kids Magazines Go Digital

November 29, 2011

Just in Time for Holiday Gift Giving

(PRWEB) November 29, 2011

For over 40 years, National Wildlife Federationâs (NWF) Ranger Rick magazine has entertained and educated generations of children about the wonders of wildlife. Now Ranger Rick, and NWFâs other childrenâs magazines (Big Backyard and Wild Animal Baby) are going digital so they can be available to kids on their Nook by Barnes & Noble. This comes just in time for holiday gift-giving, when so many subscriptions to the childrenâs magazines are purchased by parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and family friends.

âœWeâre offering the same high-quality content with amazing wildlife photos and exciting stories, but we now have an additional delivery system to meet kids where they are,â says Mary Dalheim, Editorial Director of Childrenâs Publications for NWF. âœOur award-winning magazines really come to life in the new digital platform.â

The magazines will continue to be advertising-free, and each one comes with a 14-day free trial. Single issues are available for $3.50â“$3.95, with annual subscriptions costing $15.00 for 10 issues. “These are the same prices as the paper version of the magazines, which continue to be available for those who want that hands-on experience. “For a gift that gives all year long, these prices are a real bargain,â Dalheim emphasizes.

NWF understands that kids are into their electronic devices. The organization wants to use those devices to educate kids and stimulate curiosity about the natural world. No matter where Ranger Rick meets kidsâ”in a magazine or on a tablet screenâ”he invites them to explore amazing wildlife in habitats around the globe.

Offering the magazines on Nook is just the beginning of NWFâs entrée into the digital world. It will soon be introducing nature-themed game apps for kids and an interactive version of Ranger Rick magazine with digital games, songs, animation, and wildlife video.

Digital subscriptions to Ranger Rick, Big Backyard, and Wild Animal Baby are available at http://www.nwf.org/nookforkids
