Hello, world! This magazine brings your child up close and personal with cultures and ideas from around the globe, from the discovery of new sea creatures to a look at why human beings migrate. A delightful cross between Highlights and National Geographic, Faces features folktales, activities, maps, timelines, contests, and games. Glossy photos and illustrations keep even the most reluctant readers flipping cover to cover. Give the first magazine of the subscription at holiday time, and the gifts will keep coming every month.
