The addition of games and jokes, alongside other activities such as puzzles and competitions, keeps the subjects light, while still getting across the important facts.

Six Animal "Trading" Cards- center of the magazine
These cards have excellent pictures of the animals on the front and True or False types of questions with answers on the back. They resemble Baseball cards but aren't printed on cardstock quite as thick.
Cost: Current cost here on Amazon of $15 ish is less expensive than the $20 per year cost reported on the BRC within the magazine. So this is currently a good deal.
Ads: There are a few ads in this magazine, but I don't feel like there is an abundance. The dates that reviews were written where they complain about ads are VERY old. The first ad in this month's magazine is a full page picture regarding the Nat Geo Wild Channel on TV. Page 5 has a picture of one of National Geographic's new books for kids out and page 6 has a "hidden" ad regarding Schleich's website and telling kids to grab a parent and go there to learn more about their favorite underwater creatures and how you can collect them too. The largest ad is the 1st one regarding the Nat Geo Wild Channel. There is only 1 "outside" ad regarding another brand than their own and that's the Schleich ad shown at the bottom right corner seen on page 7. The other 2 ads mention snapshot's of their own books in the same size as the ad on page 5, but one refer's to a contest to try to go online and try to win it and the other just has a snapshot of the book and says check this book out. Out of 39 pages, I find this to have minimal ads compared to most magazines.
Hopefully my attached pictures of the first 17 pages will help you decide if they are worth a $15 investment for your child or not.
Updated: includes more accurate mailing information, trading card, and cost information thanks to the comments below.. The 1st subscription according to the BRC says allow 4-6 weeks.
Including Trading Card Photos too..
This would be an AMAZING product if Nat Geo would be progressive enough to develop this into a multimedia reading app/subscription for the Amazon Kindle and other tablets.
As it is, we would NOT recommend this to others.
