Highlights Hello Magazine Honored with Prestigious Parents’ Choice Award

Columbus, OH • Monday, February 10, 2014

Highlights for Children, the leading family media brand and publisher of the best-read children’s magazines in North America, was awarded the prestigious 2014 Parents’ Choice Award for its newest magazine, Highlights Hello. The award recognizes Hello as a top magazine for children, placing it among the very best that entertain and teach with flair, stimulate imagination and inspire creativity.

Hello became a fast favorite among families when it debuted in early 2013 as Highlights’ magazine for babies, toddlers and their caregivers. Each 16-page issue contains vivid illustrations, simple lyrical poems, songs and a version of Hidden Pictures® puzzles just right for our youngest readers. Specially designed for little fingers (and mouths), the magazine is printed with non-toxic ink containing soy and vegetable oils on durable, washable paper with rounded corners and soft, stitched binding.

“Research shows that young children’s interaction with books helps with early language and literacy development,” says Editor of Hello Kathleen Hayes. “Hello is special because it not only has developmental benefits, but it also gives caregiver and child a fun and easy way to connect. And we’re honored to have Hello recognized by Parents’ Choice as a quality choice in children's media.”

Parents’ Choice Foundation has been reviewing and recommending quality children’s media for more than 33 years. The awards are determined by a panel of educators, scientists, artists, librarians, parents, and kids. Fewer than 20% of the products submitted to the Parents’ Choice Awards program receive any level of commendation.
