My mom, the Super-Grandma, wants to give my 4-year-old niece a magazine subscription (I presume to remind her of Grandma all winter while my folks are in Texas). Something like Highlights, only she thinks that might be too advanced. Kiddo loves to color and knows all her letters, numbers, etc. and is quite bright and very verbal. She’s on the brink of reading but doesn’t quite have the interest yet; although she loves books and stories, she doesn’t seem to want to learn the trick of reading herself.
