I find it very reliable, dependable, and even more advantageous than Yellow P! (In fact, I even was able to cancel Yellow P!) Been a customer for almost the whole 20 years! Am always happy to “go the extra mile” for KD and its public events. The magazine, the all-encompassing “infomercial” for Children’s entities, covers a lot of ground. Geography-wise ….and material-wise. So very glad to “be a part!’ – Uncle Wayne- Porta Puppet Players
Use your publication for party ideas, cakes, and summer activities for my son. It’s a valuable and informative resource that really fills a void for children’s activities. I tell everyone I know about it. – Casey L.
Since my pregnancy I used it a lot to find doctors, 4d ultrasound places and after that I have been using it to find children’s clothing stores, photography and much more. Almost every advertisement in the magazine is helpful for me and actually I always use it online because is more convenient. I think it is a very interesting magazine especially the kid’s activities the magazine advertises are awesome. I hope you are always around to keep helping parents like me. – Daniella O.
