Meet Sophie, Metro Parent August 2014 CoverKid – VIDEO

If laughter is a universal language, we think Sophie, 4, of Birmingham is fluent! She donned some French attire for our story on international travel.

Whether she's giggling at knock-knock jokes or gushing about her baby brother, Sophie, 4, of Birmingham is really a trip!  That's why this spunky southeast Michigan preschool tyke was a perfect fit for the cover of our late-summer magazine.

Little Miss Sophie gussied up in a classic French beret and black-and-white-striped top to capture the idea of taking a family vacation abroad with your kids, which was the cover story of the August 2014 Metro Parent. If any kid could weather an eight-and-a-half hour trip across the pond, we think this smiling gal is one great candidate! Get to know her and that adorable grin a bit better in this sweet short video:

For a second year, Metro Parent teamed up with MESP (that's the Michigan Education Savings Plan) to host our CoverKids contest – and invest in local kids' futures. Think of MESP as a 401(k), only for your child's college, vs. your retirement. The money you put in it is tax-free, thanks to its federal "529" status. You can start one up with just $25, and contribute as little as $15 per pay period. There's no limit to how much you add annually, though the max account balance is $235,000. Your kid can ultimately use the cash for tuition, room and board, and other college costs.

Be sure to meet all of our CoverKids winners for 2014, who were announced in the June 2014 issue and will be appearing on our magazine covers until early 2015.

Interested in your kid being on the cover of Metro Parent magazine? Keep checking the Metro Parent CoverKids page. We'll be looking for cute kids for our 2015-16 covers around spring of 2015. Natural self-confidence, poise and personality are what it takes. You never know: Your kid might wind up in the spotlight, too.
