Stone Soup Magazine

When you imagine your child ten years from now, what magazine do you see her reading?: A) Newsweek, B) Vogue, or C) The New Yorker?... If you answered C, then you've got to get your hands on this magazine. Pronto. Perfect for a budding author or poet, Stone Soup is a literary magazine written for and by kids ages 8-13. Every story, every poem, and every illustration is penned by a kid in this age category, but it's edited by a professional. That makes for some pretty inspiring reading for your future Toni Morrison or Seamus Heaney. ($37.00/year, www.stonesoup.com, Ages 8-13)
