If you follow me on Facebook, you may know that I had a major geek-out last month. PLOC Magazine gave my Pinterest boards a shout-out on their Facebook page! Not only that, I received a very nice email from Cathy Olmedillas, founder of PLOC and Anorak Magazines, letting me know she was going to plug my boards. I wrote her back to thank her and tell her how much I loved Anorak. I shelved a few issues at my old bookstore job and thought it was the coolest kids' magazine I'd ever seen. I blabbered on that I loved what I'd seen of PLOC on the internet, although I had never seen an issue in person. Blah blah blah, Danzel geek out - anyway, she offered to send me an issue of PLOC! It arrived yesterday, and yes, it's wonderful!
PLOC, The Happy Mag for Little Ones, is geared toward children age 3-6. The illustrations are by the amazing French illustrator Alain Grée. Our issue is Issue 2, all about SPORTS.
When Little Sis saw this cover, she immediately tried to grab the magazine from my hands! The old-fashioned illustrations are so appealing. I love Alain Grée.
Although Little Sis was taken by the illustrations, it was Big Sis who cuddled with me on the couch to play the games! The games were a lot of fun. There was always one answer we struggled to get, and we groaned together after reading the key. "How did we miss that?"
I would buy an entire coloring book as cute as this picture. For the record, Big Sis prefers the accordion, and Little Sis said, "I like trumpet and accordion." She refused to choose between them.
Someday, we'll have to make a garden in an egg, hoping it turns out half as cute as these illustrations. So adorable.
Thank you, Cathy, for our copy of PLOC. If you would like to order a copy for yourself, you can order from the Anorak shop. And for we North American folk, there is an Anorak North America now! A subscription is high on my Christmas wish list - I suppose the girls might like it, too.
