We’re proud to announce that both Ranger Rick and Ranger Rick Jr. magazines were recently awarded gold medals by the Parents’ Choice Foundation!

The Parents’ Choice Awards is the nation’s oldest nonprofit program created to recognize quality children’s media. In addition to magazines, Parents’ Choice honors the best children’s books, toys, music, apps, TV shows and more. We’re thrilled that our publications have won the top honor from this internationally respected program.

Rave Reviews for Our Magazines

This is the eighth gold medal for Ranger Rick. In their review, Parents’ Choice said that “with its beautiful photography, interesting animal facts, and appropriate stories, this quality magazine could make any child a fan of the great outdoors.” Our primary goal in producing Ranger Rick is to get kids interested in wildlife and nature, so it’s great to hear that we’re doing just that.

Ranger Rick Jr. (formerly Big Backyard) just launched in December/January 2013 and has already been honored with a Parents’ Choice gold medal. The reviewer praised the magazine’s “incredible photography and complementary graphic layout” and noted that children often read an issue multiple times, absorbing more and more details every time they pick it up.

Commitment to Quality

We recently took a big leap into the digital realm with two new products: Ranger Rick Jr. Appventures, an innovative wildlife app for ages 4–7, and Ranger Rick’s Tree House, an interactive digital magazine for ages 7–12. But we are still committed to creating high-quality print magazines that encourage curiosity and learning, and according to Parents’ Choice, we are accomplishing that goal. With their seal of approval, parents can feel even better about sharing these magazines with their children — and they might even learn something, too!
