Highlights Hello is a magazine for loving adults to share with infants
and toddlers ages 0-2. The majority of our subscribers are ages 1-2. Texts must
be developmentally appropriate for the child yet fun for the read-aloud adult
as well. We love simple humor, wordplay, or a gentle surprise on a level the
toddler can grasp.
Hello manuscripts occasionally go up to 50 words, but we strongly prefer
shorter texts for our very young audience. We like to average about 2 to 3
short lines of text per page.
in its fifth year, Highlights Hello is sporting a new, updated look as
of the May 2017 issue. Texts are accompanied by more colorful graphics, photos,
and mixed media. Before submitting, writers may find it helpful to examine
