Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 14, 2012
In an interest to better serve the 50 million Latinos in the United States, Cricket Magazine Group, a division of ePals, proudly announces the addition of Iguana magazine, its first Spanish-language magazine for children ages 7-12 years old. Iguana will expose children to the beauty of the Spanish language and the richness of Latin American culture and heritage. The magazine received a 2009 Children's Publication Award from the National Association of Multicultural Education.
“The dream for my daughters, and for all Latino children, is that they will continue to read in Spanish, to feel proud of being bilingual, and to never forget their roots,” states Christianne Meneses Jacobs, Iguana’s founder and editor. "Our mission for our young readers is this: ¡Lee ~ Descubre ~ Disfruta! (Read, Discover, Enjoy!).”
Each 32-page issue provides Spanish-speaking children a colorful magazine filled with bright photographs and beautifully illustrated stories, poetry, history, science, games, and hands-on recipes and projects. A sample issue of Iguana is available online. Published 6 times a year, the advertising-free magazine retails for $33.95 a year.
Iguana joins 14 other print and digital publications for infants to teens from Cricket Magazine Group including Babybug, Ladybug, Click, Spider, Ask, Cricket, AppleSeeds, Cobblestone, Calliope, Faces, Odyssey, Dig, Muse, and Cicada. The company has won every major magazine award in North America, including 13 Parents' Choice Awards for 2012. It has also been a finalist for the National Book Award, and reached #1 on the iTunes Education category in a dozen countries.
