I was thinking yesterday evening of how beneficial periodicals were to me when I was a kid. I enthusiastically looked forward to reading My Weekly Reader at school. I still remember almost jumping out of my seat when Batgirl was interviewed in Junior Scholastic. At home, I received Jack and Jill and Highlights. The Sunday comics page back then was more geared toward all ages; I always enjoyed reading Mickey Mouse, Peanuts, Scamp (I think it was called) and others. At Sunday School, we always received a weekly "paper" (that's what we called it as kids) with a couple of stories in each issue. These periodicals were a positive plus in my development as a reader.
