Special discount on Our Kids membership

Filed Under:

It's your lucky day! Many thanks to the fabulous Our Kids for offering a special savings: DC BABY readers can take advantage of a one-time offer on a new Our Kids membership. Become a member by April 30, 2008 and use code DCB to receive $2 off the cost.

I gave the equivalent of a five-gold-star rating to the Our Kids weekly newsletter in both the first and second editions of my book. I'm a loyal subscriber myself, and I think it's just about the strongest resource around for finding DC-area family fun with children of all ages.

As I wrote in the Revised Second Edition of the DC BABY e-book:

The Our Kids email newsletter, founded in 1999 and owned and managed by DC-area mama Amy Miller, is chock full of current events for the whole family. It has received rave reviews in with coverage in the Washington Post, The Observer, and on WTOP Radio's "Mommy Track," among others.

For a modest annual subscription fee, you get a weekly e-newsletter providing by far the best and most comprehensive calendar of events, activities, and entertainment for children and families. Our Kids covers the District, NoVa, and suburban Maryland - so no matter where you live in the DC metro area, you're going to find this an indispensible resource. From storytimes and live children's performances, from kids' movies to seasonal festivals and holiday happenings, it's all covered - complete with web links and contact info to help plan your outing. Our Kids also offers great promotional offers and discounts on area shows and events, a classified section for buying and selling children's items, information about area consignment sales, summer camp/preschool/private school coverage, first-hand reviews of area attractions from a parent's and kid's eye view, rainy-day destinations, and so much more. OurKids.com - the website affiliated with the newsletter - also offers an accessible database of area resources for pregnant women and parents with children of all ages.

We have been subscribers since moving to the DC area, and it's the one publication we consistently turn to for checking what's going on in our neighborhood and for planning our family fun. Worth every single penny of the annual subscription - and then some!
