Growing up as the 3rd child, I always found myself getting hand me down toys and had to deal with flipping through magazines that my brothers would have already solved the puzzles. But, thanks to my mom who saw how excited I got at the doctor's office one day flipping open a Highlights magazine to find the "Hidden Pictures" challenge unsolved, she surprised me on my 8th birthday with a Highlights magazine. And, every year thereafter until I was in middle school, I loved getting mail addressed to me each month, including my own copy of Highlights. And, now, years later, I get to share my love of being a Highlights Kid with my two girls. Like their mom, they love getting their own Highlights magazine each month in the mail, and we have a blast sitting down together to read the stories, sing the songs, and solves the puzzles, including the "Hidden Pictures" challenge. I love being able to share a little of my childhood memories with my girls, and love that Highlights is still around after all these years. They continue to turn out amazing educational magazines and products, and make gift giving at the holidays and birthdays easier, as I know my girls can't get enough Highlights. How about you?
