Long known as the ‘summer slide’ conundrum, the beloved Highlights brand is stepping up to the challenge of entertaining kids during the summer with Highlights™ Summer Big Fun Workbooks, 144 pages of imaginative puzzling, humor, and whimsical illustrations that will engage children 3-6+ to build confidence in learning while also combating summer slide.

When I was growing up I remember the only thing that got me through going to the dentist, or a doctor’s appointment was that I got to sit and look at the Highlights magazines. My favorite thing to do in them was finding the hidden objects. Now that I have kids, I want them to enjoy all the activities that I enjoyed when I was their age. I also love the history of Highlights, and what they stand for to help kids with learning. It lets kids feel special that they have a magazine just for them, just like grown ups.

About Highlights:

It all started in a two-room office over a car dealership in Honesdale, Pennsylvania.

The year was 1946. After decades as teachers, lecturers, and nationally recognized leaders in education and child development, Garry Cleveland Myers and Caroline Clark Myers created Highlights, a monthly magazine for children ages 6 to 12. They filled it with stories, adventures, brainteasers, and, of course, our beloved Hidden Pictures® puzzles. It reflected the Myerses’ philosophy that children become their “best selves” by using their creativity and imagination; developing their reading, thinking, and reasoning skills; and learning to treat others with respect, kindness, and sensitivity.

Used as entertainment on a summer road trip vacation, or during a random day at home, the Highlights™ Summer Big Fun Workbooks include ideas for simple ways to extend the learning through fun outdoor activities. Each book also features a rewarding certificate of completion at the end, in addition to simple tips to help parents guide their children through the activities in these workbooks.
