I can remember about 40-years ago every Friday afternoon we had a special fun reading period from Highlights Magazine. Our parents had to pay a little extra but I'm sure what ever the cost back then was well worth it. As for me personally since I have started this blog: Ajarn Donald's Fantastic Free Resources, you will notice that I will post many things, resources and sites to focus and promote reading. Throughout the twentieth century and continuing well into the 21st century, Highlights continues to strive for excellence. In 1946 this fantastic company was created by: Garry Cleveland Myers and Caroline Clark. 
Working in a two-room office over a car dealership in Honesdale, Pennsylvania, with a tiny band of co-workers, the Myerses created the first issue of the magazine they had long imagined. That first issue had a print run of 20,000 copies; in June 2006, the one-billionth copy of the magazine rolled off the presses just in time for the company's 60th anniversary.

About Cullen Wood:
Cullen has been working with young children since 1994; falling in love with her profession from the start. Her career began as a Day Care instructor and transitioned to Preschool, teaching three and four year olds. Cullen was soon named Preschool Director and successfully influenced the program’s direction for many years. However, she realized her true love and passion was teaching. So, now she has channeled her enthusiasm and experience back into teaching Preschool children.
Over the years, Cullen has also welcomed several special needs children into her Preschool classroom with very successful and satisfying results.

Cullen’s Online Preschool Program:

The Online Preschool is intended to be an aid for children who do not have the opportunity to attend preschool, a resource for homerschoolers looking to expand their curriculum, parents seeking to complement a live preschool program and even for preschool teachers to draw ideas and use the videos in class.
