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.
