We’ve had Horrible Histories for a while now, and it’s really popular. We’ve just added Cricket and Faces.


Faces helps kids understand how people in other countries live. Each issue focuses on a different culture – from Vietnam to Egypt to Haiti – including stories about daily life, folk tales, and engaging articles about history and traditions of the people and their culture.

Perhaps no other single magazine has inspired generations of readers as Cricket has. Well-known for its high-quality fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and brilliant illustrations, Cricket has intelligent, imaginative content that encourages readers to develop their own, unique creativity.
