Trying to decide on a magazine subscription for my 4yo DD. Has anyone subscribed to Zootles or Ranger Rick Jr? I like the idea with Zootles of focusing on a single animal per issue (seems like she might reread those more) but they only offer 6 issues/year compared to Rick Jr's 10 issues. Any thoughts or experiences?
Thanks in advance!

I can’t speak to either of these but my four year old loves Nat Geo Little Kids (not to make your choice even more difficult...).

@erinbaderin: Thanks! That was my frontrunner initially but then I saw several reviews that said it was too short/infrequent for the money. Glad to hear your family loves it!

We subscribe to Ranger Rick JR and like it! My son enjoys learning about animals and nature, and it gives us a good opportunity to read together. I've never heard of Zootles though. If it's not too expensive, maybe consider subscribing to both? We also get High Five, so we have more than one magazine coming to us.

We have Zootles and love it! But also no other comparison so I’m not sure how helpful that is! I’m going to look up the Nat Geo Kids though because my LO eats up those books.
