Greetings from Root & Star!
Root & Star magazine brings beautiful art, stories, poems, and activities to young children. We love to inspire (and be inspired by) the WHOLE child—the wise, the wild, the strange, and the sweet.
Children see you get your magazines in the mail (hi, Taproot!), and they love to receive quality gifts in the mail, too. As a family, you can get cozy this summer as you enjoy Root & Star magazine together—which is peaceful and silly and thoughtful and gorgeous. As you flip through the pages, you and your child can feel more grounded, peaceful, and uplifted by the beauty and wildness of true art and quality children’s literature delivered to your door six times a year.
SouleMama: Since the last time you were featured on SouleMama, in what ways has your business grown or changed?
Christine and I are both writers and artists who then became mothers. She is situated in Seattle, while I am in Virginia, which can make for an adventurous collaboration. For a project we did for our newest issue, Christine mailed smelly seaweed across the country so that I could print it on paper. We recently met for a blissful weekend in the middle of the country to align our visions, get newly inspired, and map out the next year’s issues. We love learning about other artists, writers, and innovative parents who can contribute to the magazine with us. By creating this collaborative labor of love, we hope to inspire families to see the beauty in their children, and to inspire children to be their whole selves—to feel all of their wisdom and their wildness. We believe that children of all ages can enjoy quality literature, and that children’s literature should be beautiful and thoughtful enough that the whole family can get something out of it.
We launched our first four issues this year, and we are so pleased with their quality. Because we are ad-free, we are indebted to our tiny readers and their generous caregivers, who help us to continue to bring beauty and literature to young families.
This weekend, Root & Star is generously offering the following gifts to TWO lucky SouleMama readers:
A year’s subscription to Root & Star children’s magazine! You will find this gift in your mailbox six times a year, bringing extra joy, nature, and wonder into your home — plus a beautiful silkscreened tote bag, handmade in New Hampshire. Enjoy! — Courtney & Christine
