Indianapolis (July 9, 2013) – After 60 years of entertaining children across the country, Humpty Dumpty Magazine will be hitting newsstands for the first time. The award-winning publication, previously available by subscription only, will now be offered on newsstands exclusively at nearly 700 Barnes & Noble stores nationwide, as well as online at barnesandnoble.com.
Humpty Dumpty Magazine helps kids develop reading, writing, artistic, and cognitive skills through stories, nonfiction articles, recipes, crafts, games, and more, that follow the Common Core State Standards for education.
Humpty Dumpty Magazine, written for children ages 5-7, and its sibling publications, Jack and Jill and Turtle–which hit newsstands last year–are popular titles published by the nonprofit Saturday Evening Post Society and reach more than 244,000 readers per issue.
Offering Humpty Dumpty Magazine on Barnes & Noble newsstands and barnesandnoble.com alongside Turtle and Jack and Jill allows the magazine to reach a wider audience, furthering the publications’ goals of encouraging educational, creative, social, and emotional growth for children.
“We’re excited to have Humpty Dumpty Magazine join the other two magazines on newsstands,” said Joan SerVaas, CEO and President of the Saturday Evening Post Society (SEPS). “Now kids can browse all three publications when they head to their local Barnes & Noble and take home the leading kids’ titles for learning and healthy living.”
