Back Issues of ‘Cobblestone: The History Magazine for Young People’

Since January 1980, Cobblestone: The History Magazine for Young People has been published for kids ages 9 to 14. We’ve added several back issues of this magazine to our offerings of ad-free educational magazines. The back issues we have listed are from the late 1980s and early 1990s (as of this writing) and are approximately 48 pages each, illustrated with black-and-white photographs and drawings. The publication has been the recipient of the Parent’s Choice Award several times, with the latest being in 2013.

As with other Educational Magazines in our catalog, Cobblestone issues make great foundations for unit studies.

Concerning its back issues, the publisher writes, “One of the best things about COBBLESTONE is that back issues are just as interesting as each current issue—and just as important. … Because COBBLESTONE themes are never outdated, back issues are in heavy demand.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

Below are the back issues we currently have in our catalog. If you have issues that you’d like to have listed, please consign with us.
