Founded and published by 2 Memphis artists who recognized the need for a FREE publication serving children in their large, urban community. Their mission is simple: TO FEED THE MINDS AND SPIRITS OF CHILDREN EVERYWHERE WITH EDUCATIONAL FUN! This publication is solely funded by sponsors, underwriters and advertisers who also share this mission, while also promoting their community non-profit events and family friendly services.
Jabberblabber’s senior advisory board is a diverse group of parents, educators and qualified professionals who are instrumental in assuring parents that this publication is suitable for children of all ages. They love children and are committed to the task of keeping Jabberblabber Magazine in circulation in the Mid South, while also developing a plan for a international launch of Jabberblabber through educational programming.
Jabberblabber Magazine is printed on recycled paper with natural inks and readers are encouraged to collect them for their private libraries, use them for creative art projects or recycle them. Jabberblabber is also available online to read at home or use in the classroom. Children derive joy from the games and puzzles in this magazine, especially those that encourage family interaction.
