Some Handsome Hands

May/June 2017

Welcome to the world of Root & Star, the magazine for the WHOLE child—the wise, the wild, the strange, & the sweet.

We bring heartfelt literature and art to children all year long. Hooray!

In our ninth issue, we explore HANDS! We feature a funny poem about fingers, some curly wire art, a beautiful intro to acupressure, and a lot of mud and clay! Come find out!

Issue 9 includes amazing work by all this loving talent: C.M. Andrews, Joseph Brackett, Jennifer Davis, Marjo van Dijck, Susan EaddyDavid Gregal Jr., Christine Hartzler, Erika HessAbbigail Knowlton IsraelsenJonathan JamesDiane KomaterLida LarinaCourtney MandrykDerek MongMelissa Mytty, Mary O'Neill, Heather Franzen RuttenAtabey Sanchez-Haiman, and Beth Winn.

40 full-color pages of beauty and life.

The target audience for each magazine is children ages 2–8, or children who are being read to and/or are just learning to read—but because children are never far from their siblings and caregivers, we created a magazine that can be enjoyed by all ages, from 1 to 100.

Root & Star is published six times per year. Join us with one issue, or SUBSCRIBE here!
