August Has Arrived!

Heads up, readers! Our August issues are out on stands! It has been a busy month of deadlines for us here at LP — but well worth the three new editions of DallasChild, NorthTexasChild and FortWorthChild magazines.

In the Back-to-School Issue, we bring you a grade-by-grade guide to your child's upcoming school year. With this guide, you can compare and contrast your child's learning progress against Texas' standards. (Oh, the delight of learning that your little academic is ahead of the game!) This chart will take the guessing out of the age-old question, "What did you learn today?" Be sure to check out the exclusive extended version of this story, which includes tips for identifying if your child's struggling in school, on our Web sites (Dallas, North Texas, Fort Worth).

This month's editions also feature profiles of two moms making a name for themselves in the DFW area: Nicole Small, CEO of the Dallas Museum of Nature & Science (shown with daughters Julia and Sadie at right), and Trish Biddle, a nationally acclaimed artist/painter. Learn how these mamas make it happen — whether it's planning a new children's museum in Dallas or painting the next graphics for the 2010 Westminster Dog Show!

In addition to these highlights, August's magazines harbor a harrowing tale about one family's struggle to find affordable health insurance for their three kids. We examine the politics behind Texas' Children's Health Insurance Program — do changes need to be made to address the challeges of today's middle-class families? You decide. After all, you're paying for it.

Please send us feedback on the new issue — we value your thoughts and opinions! Let us know what you think! E-mail editorial@dallaschild.com or post your comments on the blog.
