U.S. Kids Magazines Turtle and Jack and Jill Available on Newsstands for First Time

Indianapolis (November 13, 2012) – Extra! Extra! Kids, read all about it! For the first time ever, U.S. Kids will offer two of its magazine titles on newsstands beginning with the December issues of Turtle and Jack and Jill (on sale November 13th). The award-winning magazines, previously available by subscription only, will now be offered on newsstands exclusively by Barnes & Noble in almost 700 locations across the country.

Turtle, written for children ages 3-5, and Jack and Jill, written for children ages 7-12, are both popular titles published by the non-profit Saturday Evening Post Society and are committed to improving the health and well-being of children. The publications, along with Humpty Dumpty, written for children ages 5-7, aim to encourage children of all races and cultures to strive for excellence in the areas of academics, personal fitness, creativity, and artistic expression. Offering Turtle and Jack and Jill on Barnes & Noble newsstands will allow the magazines to reach a wider audience, furthering the publications’ goals.

Turtle and Jack and Jill have been reaching readers for decades by subscription, but having never been offered on newsstands, they were unavailable for kids and parents to pick up on a whim in stores,” said Corey Michael Dalton, U.S. Kids Editor. “Now kids can browse these titles when they head to their local Barnes & Noble and take home the leading kids’ titles for learning and healthy living.”
