My DD's grandparents overseas have very kindly asked what DD would like for Christmas.  They were thinking of either a magazine subscription or something like a "book-of-the-month" sort of club.  It sounds like a lovely idea, but I have no idea in which direction to point them and they have asked me for suggestions.

Any ideas of a magazine subscription for a five year old girl?  Or is there such a thing as a children's book-of-the-month club in Australia?  DD is just started to read and sound out words...

If she's interested in nature there's a really nice magazine for young readers called National Geographic Little Kids.  There's another called National Geographic Kids for older readers too.
