Magazine memories. What were your favorite magazines as a child and teen?

Tell us your favorite magazines and magazine memories as a child and teen.

As part of our celebration of Children’s Magazine Month this October, we are are creating a collection of memories about our favorite magazines as children and teens.  MagazineLiteracy.org exists because of these memories and the impact of magazines on our lives – because we remember and know the joy of reading magazines and the influence that magazines had during or formative years.  This underscores the importance of reading materials in the home and our keen interest in getting magazines into the hands and hearts of children and families who want to read them.

As the stories of magazine memories are coming in, there are a few common themes and some pleasant surprises – reminders that have teased out some additional fond memories for me.
