Look of an Old Soul: Jack Wilde Jr. of Chevak, a village in Alaska, may only be 2 years old, but he already has the appearance of an avid Ruralite reader as he holds an Alaska Village edition of the magazine in his tiny hands.

What’s He Reading?: It is the Before You Go page from August that featured a photograph of Ally the kitty, who was rescued by a 15-year-old in Washington.

Planting the Reading Seed: It is never too early for parents to encourage their children by reading out loud, modeling a love of reading and keeping reading materials in the home—such as that family-friendly magazine from your local power provider!
