About:
A behind the scenes look at the most popular children’s magazine in the world.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Since 1946, kids across the country, and, eventually, around the world, have enjoyed Highlights magazine, a staple at doctors’ offices known for its instructive Goofus and Gallant feature and hidden-picture illustrations. Shaff’s heartwarming film follows the creation of the magazine’s landmark 70th anniversary issue, from initial editorial meetings through cover and feature designs, to the finished product, offering an inside look at the family-owned publication and the passionate staff that serves “the world’s most important people:” children.
