Babybug is an illustrated magazine published for children between 6 months and 3 years of age. The magazine is published as a precursor to Ladybug, a title published for older children. Included in the magazine are developmentally appropriate and stimulating stories, rhymes, and illustrations, as well as advice for parents on early child development.
Babybug is known well for publishing developmentally stimulating stories and rhymes, written to build curiosity and help children practice crucial reading skills. Many of these stories are parts of larger series that continue with each issue of the magazine.
Each issue of Babybug contains developmentally appropriate illustrations, often paired with rhymes and stories in the magazine. Popular British artist Clara Vulliamy writes and illustrates “Kim and Carrots,” a regular series in the magazine that keeps young readers excited for each issue.
Readers of Babybug are treated to advice on early child development. What are the differences between certain styles of play? What are the signs of strong early language development? These are just some of the questions the magazine’s experts and professionals help readers with each month.
