Looking for a great gift for a Teacher? 


Instead of giving the typical Starbucks gift card, this year, parents can give a gift that continues throughout the school year and benefits both the teacher and the students – a subscription to one of Cricket Media’s 14 children’s magazines. This gift helps teachers inspire a lifelong love of reading and learning for their students.


Cricket Magazine, once dubbed “the New Yorker for children,” turned 40 years old last year – and its print edition is still thriving. Its publisher, Cricket Media, has expanded its children’s media collection and now has more than a dozen other award winning children’s magazines for toddlers to teens focusing on Literature & Imagination, History & Culture, and Science & Ideas.


Cricket’s magazine collection is available both in print and digital subscriptions and can both be purchased as gifts. For subscription information, please visit

Asia’s one-of-a-kind projects include step-by-step instructions and handy photographs to help develop kids’ creativity and skills—all without a screen in sight.
